WELCOME TO ENG2D - September 2018
Welcome to ENG2D - I look forward to working with the Grade 10 students in this English Academic program this semester. I have provided a brief overview of the course description below.
This course is designed to continue development of critical analysis of variety of literary genres through a variety of literary analyses focused on enhancing their application and interpretation of figurative language, literary devices and story elements in study of Shakespeare's "THE TRAGEDY OF JULIUS CAESAR" , and Erich Maria Remarque's classic Word War I novel "ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT" and George Orwell's iconic "ANIMAL FARM. In addition, students will select a novel of their choice by a Canadian author for their Independent Study Unit project this semester. Students will continue to engage in advanced language mechanics skill building and in formal essay writing assignments. This course is intended to prepare students for the Grade 11-12 University pathway English courses. Student will also be involved in learning activities that will prepare them for the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test scheduled for April 10, 2018.
The complete course outline is posted on our web page. Notes and course information will be posted regularly our class web site for student and parent reference. Please refer to the folders of information below.
STRATEGIES FOR STUDENT SUCCESS:
The ENG2D course serves as the foundation for future university pathway high school English courses. Students are expected to consistently apply independent learning skills focusing on self management, homework completion, independent daily review and study and class participation and attendance. Effective application of these learning skills will ensure student success and preparation for continued advanced study In Academic Language Arts.
Please note that cell phones are not permitted in class. Students are expected to arrive to class with their course binder and pens/pencils, their required texts, and positive attitude and willingness to learn.
I wish all the students a successful semester in ENG2D.
