It’s been crazy times at PWC this month. In English we’ve been working on all kinds of ideas and projects! Students in 1201 and 2201 can talk about the novels they’ve done, 3202 can spout wisdom from ‘Into the Woods’ and we can all talk about looking forward to the break!
I wanted to point out an assignment I’ve posted for 1201 and 2201. For each of those courses, I’ve made an optional assignment covering several genres from this year – a short story, an essay, a poem, a visual and an analytical essay for them to write. It’s a big assignment. HOWEVER, the perks of doing it are as follows:
- For each grade, it can replace an assignment. I’ve listed on the front page the assignments that it can replace. If a student does it, I will put the mark for this optional assignment in for one of the listed assignments, if the did better. It can only replace one, but for some, it’s a chance to get a zero changed to a mark. For others, it’s a chance to do better than they originally did.
- I will enter this as it’s own grade. So, the mark will be in powerschool twice. If they do well, that’s double the fun!
- If a student does not do well and it would bring down their mark, we will chalk it up to practice and I won’t put it in. The goal is to help their marks!
This assignment is made up of elements that might be on their exam that we’ve covered already this year. So, for any student, it is practice for the final. That never hurts!
You can find the assignment in either 1201 or 2201 assignments, whichever you’re looking for.
