Good Afternoon,

*No Red Ink:  Active and Passive Voice/Punctuation with conjunctions

*Core Competency Self Reflection:  You will have a few minutes to post this reflection.


*What did we learn about Residential Schools?


*Analyzing Poems:  In groups, you will be going through the analyzing poetry resource and applying it to the three poems we studied:  “Walking on two Sides of the Border”, “What do I remember of the Evacuation”, and “Caged Bird”.  We will do this on larger paper so we can post/gallery walk

Where will your path lead you: Carpe Diem

You will be creating a Chart on Office 365….and in groups (of three hopefully!) you will be analyzing the following poems.  What will your path be?  my hope is that you not only analyze these poems, but also discuss their meaning…you will need the analyzing poetry sheet
