What have we been up to in EAL?
Grade 11 students gave presentations on resilient women from history. Leading up to the project, we explored the idea of resiliency through various non-fiction texts, current events, poetry, and videos on resilient women. Each student chose a resilient woman (past or present) to present on. Presentation skills were a major focus leading up to this project as well.
Grade 12 students completed a unit on immigration. After reading a short story about a family who moved to the USA from Vietnam, students chose a teacher at Dwight to interview who has or is currently living abroad. They then turned their interviews into magazine articles.
