Harris History Update

Hi Folks:

Progress reports will be issued tomorrow. Some teachers do not print them off; you can check the student and/or parent portal if that’s the case. I usually issue a mini-report slip. Parent-Teacher interviews are Thursday, April 3 from 4:30-7:30.

P1: Literacy test prep today. Please ask your son or daughter how they feel about the types of questions. There is support material at eqao.com. Reminder of the in-class essay next Tuesday (open book).

P3: A brief overview reading and focus questions about ancient Egypt was assigned. Many finished it in class but it should be done for homework if not.

P4: We went over the political spectrum and students were again asked to determine their political leanings. I gave them an infographic that’s American but it still does a good job of differentiating the left from the right. Might be interesting to discuss with them where they think they are on the spectrum. The class election began today as well and the students seemed pretty enthusiastic. The campaign will be tomorrow and the issue is how to improve the student experience at Oakridge with a budget of $10 000. We’ll have posters, speeches, tweets and debates so it will be very authentic. No homework otherwise.

Why is it snowing on the first day of spring?

Have a great evening!
