English 9 Update

Posted: January 13, 2017

For the two weeks prior to exams, students will be heavily preparing for their ELPA (English Language Proficiency Assessment).  This assessment is written by all grade nine students in the province.  Our students will write it on Monday, January 23rd at 12:30pm.  This week we have focused on word work (prefixes, suffixes, root words, figuring out vocabulary words in context). Next week, we will be reviewing terminology, figurative language, and multiple choice strategies.  If you want more information on the ELPA, you can find it at this website: http://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/education/k12/content/anglophone_sector/assessment_evaluation.html#3
