Grade 11 English
Teacher Chris Bonner
This week we begin a new reading lesson to teach vocabulary, comprehension, and a little bit about Greek Mythology. Each week, we will read one chapter, greatly edited and condensed, from the story ‘The Odyssey’. Each chapter will include a discussion and a quiz. Upon completion of our epic tale, students will have the opportunity to select a short story about any mythological figure that they would like to read about; such as Hercules, Prometheus, Icarus, etc. Lessons in grammar and writing will continue to follow the outline of the book.
Next week is also Science Week. The English schedule may relax to accommodate the Science activities.
Grade 11 Chemistry I
Teacher Siri Sawangjai
Students will continue to quantify the chemical components using formula weights and percent composition calculation. Practice handouts will be given to do in their own time. Therefore, students can use the rest of the time in class to work on the recycled/reused fashion show project together.
