Grade 8 ELA – Vlog Recording – Due: 8A 20th & 8B 19th

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.

HIS30S Annotated Bibliography – Due Oct. 9th

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.
