I would like you to provide me with a writing assignment that I can use to help you with your English grammar and response structure.

Complete the attached assignment

Posted: April 27, 2020

English 11-2. As instructed continue with the poetry project and pass it in when you have completed it.  I will have new instructions for home learning next Monday.

English 12-2.  I need Reading comprehension responses and Research essays from all of you.  I will have new instructions for home learning next Monday.

Posted: April 22, 2020

Continue with the at home learning resources provided last week.  Send me your personal responses to your experiences with these resources.

As you have no doubt heard, the province is allowing us to make a distinction between those who are taking a pass in Engish 12-2 and those who are challenging for credit.  In order for me to see how to best serve you and prepare you to get a credit in my course I need a writing sample to look at (which is why I need your research essays sent to me) and I need you to complete an extensive reading comprehension test.  This reading comprehension assessment will allow me to determine how strong your reading skills are and how best I can help you improve.  This is not a graded test, it is to help me guide your learning. I will be responding to everyone who submits both the research essay and the test in the next couple of weeks to provide you with feedback and personalized instruction on how you can improve the skills you are lacking. IF YOU WANT CREDIT FOR MY COURSE YOU NEED TO START BY COMPLETING AND SUBMITTING YOUR ESSAY AND THIS READING ASSESSMENT.

Read and complete the attached assignment.  I will allow 2 weeks to complete the assignment before assigning new work.  Email your answers to me when you complete the work. As always, if you have questions, or need clarification send me an email and I will respond as soon as I can.

Reminder to all. Some of my students have told me that they did not know where to send work.

dean.goldrup@nbed.nb.ca

The attached document will direct you to a number of learning resources for at home learning.  I would like you to access 2 of these links per week and write a one page personal response telling me what you learned, and what you did with these links.  You can send these responses to my email: dean.goldrup@nbed.nb.ca

During this unique time students are being asked to do something they have never really been asked to do before.  They are being asked to do work to develop skills without the reward of grades or the hovering corrective presence of teachers.  YOu are being asked to take ownership pf your own learning.  As a result, this next assignment will give you a very important peek behind the curtain to see what our standards to determine whether you advance from 11 to 12 are.  

I will be attaching both the Grade 11 Reading and Viewing Standards and the Grade 11 Writing and Representing Standards.  Your assignment is to read them both and write a 1 page personal reflection.  Yor reflection needs:

Proper Grammar, your understanding of what you read, and where you think you fit in these standards.

This is important.  We are here for support but you need to decide how serious you will take this home learning.  Reflect on these standards and think about where you are and where you need to improve.  Will you be ready for Grade 12?

When you complete your research essay it will be time to begin a reading and viewing comprehension assessment at the Grade 12 level.

The attached file is an assignment in which you have to prove you know how to connect something you have watched to something you have listened to through your understanding of their themes.

I will be sharing a couple of essential documents that you will need to monitor and understand your progress as you practice English as an additional language from home. I suggest you look through the series of 'I can' statements for Speaking, Listening and Reading to get a sense of what you can do and what you need to work on.  This should also be shared with your host family so they can tell you what they have witnessed in your language development and help you practice some of the ways you need to improve.  More specific exercises to develop these skills will follow as the weeks progress.
