1. The government has announced that provincial scholarship monies will be determined by the students standing based on their five mandatory provincial exams in Grades 10, 11 and 12: Math, Science, and English 10, Social Studies 11, and English 12. They also stated that optional Gr. 12 exams will no longer be offered. Post Secondary bound students will need to treat their three grade 10 courses seriously for their $1000 or $2000 scholarships.
I aim to help students, parents and teachers find useful materials.
The left side of my website contains:
The COURSE INFO section contains my course previews, expected outcomes and my teaching/learning/assessment philosophy.
The CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT/INTENTIONAL PRACTICE section contains daily updates on the questions assigned to build a stronger understanding of ideas and it create a greater retention and ability with these concepts. It is organized by month.
Students and parents can always find out what has been happening in the class by going to the month and then to the day in question and the particular block to know what is assigned. I will also post about a week in advance of when the extra help sessions will be offered.
The SPECIAL NOTES section contains pages of typed notes for students (and others) to print off when needed.
The WORKSHOPS section contains copies of materials that I've presented in workshops. This section is mainly for teachers.
The right side of my website contains:
NEW DISCOVERIES where I publish students new ideas.
MATH CLUB announcements and sometimes activities
SPECIAL WEBSITES with links to interesting and helpful sites
