Well , everyone survived the changes this 3rd term . Well done ; Keep up the work until end of school year .

In literature students are studying a science fiction novel " I Robot "and will discuss the impact of robotic in the future or near future .

Regarding writing skills students learned about elements needed to identify a leaflet and in what ways it is different from an article ; Students were asked to write memos .

Discussion have been going on in our classroom with the study of short stories from Ray Bradbury . We compared and contrasted different forms of writing concerning the theme of loneliness . This week our challenge theme will be discrimination .

Students are  expected to fully engage in the discussions and voice their point of view , supporting their arguments (in preparation of IB  expectations ).

All students are encouraged to bring in the classroom daily newspapers .

See you all Monday; happy and ready for the week !

Every week , on Monday we will discuss the quote of the week . I will always post it on the weekend for students to reflect on .

Quote of the week : 4.“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” -Andre Gide
