Students have been taught about sonnets, given examples, and done lead-in activities. Last step is to write our own! Class time has been given that is sufficient to complete this assignment without it becoming arduous homework – but the final, typed copy is due Tuesday, if students have been fighting writer’s block!
Topic? Anything from a visit to the dentist to hamburgers!

Maze Runner Vlog Rubric
Above you will find the rubric for the Vlog recording.
Students can use an i-pod/i-pad to record their Vlog.
i-movie is an excellent app. It comes with all the editing tools too!
How to use imovie
If you don’t have an apple product, Microsoft Movie Maker is another great tool.
Students can download their Vlog and then upload it to YOUTUBE. If they prefer not to have their recording published privately/publicly they can also just bring their device to class and we can watch it directly from there.
The following words will be included on the next spelling quiz. Remember, I will also draw five words from previous quizzes as well.
Use technology to locate and find 3 Geocaches in your neighbourhood.
Hand in (through email or print off) a .docx
Include the name of the cache, the coordinates, an image of you with the cache, and a description of the find (were there lots of muggles, was it where you thought it would be, could you not find it, why not, did you look at the hint or read the log? etc.)
Include all 3 finds on the one document
1) Make a cache (micro, mini, small) at home. Film container, Tupperware, Jar, etc. Consider some kind of camo. Put the name of the cache inside (on a piece of paper)
2) Hide the cache in Munson Park or Peanut Park
3) Mark the coordinates where you hid the cache.
4) Bring to class a piece of paper (typed) that includes the following information
a) The name of the cache (should be representative of where it is hidden)
b) A small description (a sentence or two) of the cache, location, name, etc. (no hints needed)
c) The coordinates where we can find the cache in the form of N 49 52.482 W 097 09.564
d) The size of the cache, the difficulty of the terrain, the difficulty of finding the cache (use a 5 point scale)
Writer’s Card – Finish the Writer’s Card advertisement for the power of writing. Use pencil crayon to add brilliant colour to your work. Use a very fine black pen to outline and shade your drawing. Be sure your statement about writing is a complete sentence and is printed in fine black ink. Leave no white spaces on your art piece (unless the item is white – for example a white cloud).
7A DUE Wednesday Oct. 7. 7B Due Thursday Oct. 8.
The purpose of this assignment is to practice research, consider the kinds of sources we find in history, and also to explore First Nations diversity. Sometimes research is frustrating, and that’s okay. Instead of a report, students are producing an annotated bibliography. This means they need not have a perfect answer to the research question – what’s important is that they have looked at a variety of sources and are able to summarize and evaluate them.
Please see attached document for further assignment details.
