Hello everyone!

Take a look at your marks. The link is on your right. I have combined Terms 3 and 4 into one term, now called Term 1. It will provide you with a clear overview of your overall grade. It's weighted 80/20 between Terms 3 and 4. This is the final mark because there is no final exam. If you see zeroes on the final assignments, don't panic. They will be changed once I receive your final assignments.

  • English 10

          Hi everyone,

          The deadline for Term 3 has passed. I will accept work until Thursday, but because I'm swamped with marking and I need to pull something together for Term 4 AND do report cards, I won't have time for feedback on anything mailed to me past Tuesday.

          Because we've been directed to offer only 1/4 of a normal course load, there will only be a handful of assignments for Term 4. I'll post Version 1.0 of the instructions next Monday or Tuesday.
