Week 2

English Banner 2

Grade 10 English
Teacher Chris Bonner

The first week was on course with the introductions and class rules. The outline changed in each class due to the lack of textbooks and workbooks.

We began with the first grammar lesson in the first chapter of each book, which involved compound words and sentences. The lesson expanded to include sentence structure. This is one of the most important lessons in all levels, as a clear understanding and usage of sentence structure will raise the students’ perceived level of ability in both speaking and writing.

The lesson continues in the second week, and includes pdf presentations, an instructional video, a game (which is also a form of quiz), and the first five-point quiz.

The assessment of student speaking abilities and understanding was useful in determining the level of future lessons for each class. Several students, however, demonstrated a lack of understanding of the class rules. They will be continually reminded.

The first week presents an introduction to the teacher, course work, and class materials.
The class rules and student expectations are also discussed.
