Students are working on their projects.ir:
 
The first due date is this Friday for the title page for the big project. Samples shown in class and students are encouraged to do this one on the computer. They can bring in a memory stick to print here if need be.
 
Japan: We have been doing all of this in class, but I am sending some things home today due to projected storm tomorrow.  Completion expected for this Friday. Will re-evaluate on Thursday. Many are very close. Some who have missed time may need to do more at home or during lunch options.
 
Please refer to the sheet with the dealines if you are unsure of the dates.
They are staggered so that they can do it in small units.  Students find this is less overwhelming.

Project information went home. We are beginning projects next week. Students may choose between:  Heritage Fair OR International Project (not Japan, not Canada)

We will as mucn of the work in class as we can.

​given is to give them goals to work to and I will do mini lessons for each as we proceed.

So, for the title page, I will demonstrate how to and give examples, have them do a plan and then they can complete it for homework.

On Monday they will begin research and I have sheets ready for them to guide the process of gathering information.

It will be done in stages and hopefully quite manageable.

General Information: Extra help at lunch has moved to Day 5. That will be Wednesday of next week. Students who may need time to catch up on class projects are asked to come in then to do so. At this point I am advising students who are behind to drop in while I have a club running on Monday at lunch to pick up their work and go to the Peer Helper room to finish it.

les Actualités (News):
Day 1 & FRIDAY, next week selected students will be presenting news items from around the world.
This is a warm-up with about 4 or 5 students who will give a very brief news item. The must:
1) Speak in French only (all vocabulary they need to express the news must be research beforehand Speak in French only (all vocabulary they need to express the news must be research beforehand
2) Identify the topic, the country and the continent of the news item
3) State 4 or 5 details about the news items
4) Identify the element (s)of culture in which it belongs (technology, beliefs and values, expressions of culture, history, economy, government) - may be more than one
5) The students will show the country of origin on the world map as part of the presentation.
*It must be a significant news item, but can be given in a brief fromat.
I suggest a cue card with key words would be enough to present the news. They will be marked on these little presentations, but they are not big projects, just 1-2 minutes in length is fine.
Class projects: Map, Japan and Interview are coming to an end. We are trying to finish them up and move on. M. Tanaka will be with our classes until the end of January and then he will move on to other classes. The students havelearned a great deal about Japan and are completing a little project about this beautiful counntry with its many cultural treasures.

6H Homeroom:
Christmas Treat Bag !
Due on Monday, Dec. 19,  if participating.
Decorate this bag and fill it with treats of your choice! The item(s) may be handmade. Don’t go overboard and only spend up to $5. Bring in for the morning of December 19th. We will have a bin for you to pop your treat bag into and then at Nutrition Break we will pull a treat bag from the bin that we did not bring in and open it to explore the delights within. The treat bag need not be food. It could be something else.  It is important that the students keep which bag that belong's to them a secret.  The surprised faces is the best part. This is optional and in lieu of a Secret Santa gift exchange. We find it to be less stressful.
