Poetry Unit: (Last time we look at poetry as a unit! Promise)
Time for a Test! (or two) Before the Easter Holidays are here, we need to have a few tests. We will have a short story test that pertains to major themes in Sinclair Ross’s stories, as well as questions pertaining to Canadian Identity and etymology. As for the poetry, we have done quite a bit now and I will give the class a choice.
Option A- No poetry test. 🙂 Oral interpretation in front of the class of a poem of choice that we have NOT studied in class.
Option B- Poetry test. All poems we have done, with terminology from the Poetry handouts and a sight piece.
You may do either. If you choose the presentation, you will have one hour of class time to work on it in the library while the other students write the exam. The test and the presentation will be worth the same amount of marks. The choice is yours!
Our unit exam will take place on Thursday, April 11th. It consists of everything we have done EXCEPT poetry.
