 The quality of the five questions you would ask the characters in terms of insight into the character.
 The quality of responses. Do they show you have assumed the role of the character?
The oral presentation will be graded on eye contact, volume (can I hear you), intonation (rise and fall of your voice level to avoid the monotone voice), expression and posture (don't slump or shift from side to side).
Journal entry number two should be passed into me by now.
I have some grade eight journal entries with no names on the cover. Does one belong to you?

TEST MODULE 1 WED OCT 7 
Language Arts Assigned By: David Dyer  Today I talked to all students about written work that is passed in and the criteria necessary for junior high. Here are the expectations:
1. Quality writing always wins over quantity. Please ensure that what you write has substance.
2. Vary your word choice. When you use the same words multiple times, it means you need to use a thesaurus.
3. Please use a dark pencil that has an eraser. I correct around 200 pages of work a week and would like to keep my eyes.
4. Please do not list in a journal or writing piece. I'm listing because of the constricted space of this posting. This information is like a grocery list. In language arts writing, the paragraph indicates a new idea and thus a number is not necessary (i.e., the first thing that I, the second point I want, the third point).
5. Stick to the topic sentence. Provide evidence with what you are writing using text to self, text to text or text to world.
6. If you are given class time to work on an assignment, utilize the time. You will have limited written work to do at home if you do this.

Science Humaines Assigned By: Caleb Thorne  Artifact Assignment is out and due on October 15

Write a letter to Prime Minister Harper outlining your concerns about your chozen situation (e.g. human rights, cost of living, access to the Internet for all, genetically modified foods, health care, cost of prescription medication, etc.) and providing some ideas you have for improving the situation.
The student address and format is provided in a template.
Outline:
Paragraph one: Grab the reader's attention in a creative way. Introduce yourself and tell why it is important that Mr. Harper should listen to you.
Paragraph two: State your concerns. Describe how and why you have become concerned about your chosen situation.
Paragraph three and four: Propose at least two ideas for change and how these changes can be accomplished.
Paragraph five: Thank Mr. Harper for his time and attention to your area of concern and offer him your contact information.
Please remember that this assignment is to be completed in the classroom. You can research your ideas at home though. We will begin this tomorrow.

What are some important qualities a friend should have?
Last week we discussed the 'Three T's' which consist of transitional words and phrases, topic sentence and thesis. Here are the definitions the students have:
Topic Sentence: It expresses the main idea of the paragraph. It generally states what the paragraph will be about, and comes at the beginning of the body paragraph.
Thesis: A statement that presents the writer's point of view clearly and concisely. It is usually (but not always near the beginning of the piece of writing.
Transitional words and phrases: Words that show clearly how ideas are connected with one another (e.g. therefore, as well, thus, in addition).
Please read your independent novel at home. Students were given the following assignment for their novel which is due around October 9, give or take a few days.
You have been given the opportunity to interview the main character of the novel which you have read. Complete the following:
Prepare five questions that you would like to ask this character.
Answer these questions.
Assume the role of the character
Have a classmate interview you in class.
These questions and responses should reflect the content of the novel and the personality of your character.
You will receive two grades: one for content, determined by what you say and one for your oral delivery.
