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:

We have been working on our extended narratives in class and we have have many grammar mini-lessons on sentence structure and conventions.  The due date for the final copy of the extended narrative is Monday.  Students will have lab time tomorrow and Friday to start typing.  On Tuesday, the grade nines will have a grammar quiz on all of the concepts we've covered during this unit.  The students will receive a quiz outline ahead of time.
