Language Update: Science Fiction Short Story Assignment

Assalam Alaikum Dear Parents,

During the past 5 weeks, the students have learned to identify how authors create imaginary worlds through Science Fiction. Weève examined what Science Fiction is, what makes a good Science Fiction story, how to read science fiction, how to interpret, connect, and predict, and, how to identify key figurative language in short stories. We also had the opportunity to watch a Science Fiction movie in class!

To end the unit, the students will be writing their very own short story in this genre. This is the final task for this unit and it will be due on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 19th. All of the work will be completed in class.

Important: Upcoming History Test!

Assalam Alaikum Dear Parents,

We are finishing the 2nd chapter of the Confederation this week. The students have explored the external and internal factors that lead to the Confederation. The main areas explored in this chapter  were the political, economical and defense issues. There will be a test on all the key facts and terminology studied  on Thursday the 18th of December.

Also, please make sure your child brings home all assessed rubrics to be signed and sent back to me.

Jazakullah khair for continuing to work with me !
