Friday – May 4th
Students will attend a special viewing of the documentary film “Directly Affected: Pipeline Under Pressure” in the Multi-Purpose Room of our school. Students need to ask for permission from their blocks 5 and 6 teachers as the viewing is not on a ConnEx day. The filmmaker, Zack Embree, will be in attendance for a Q&A after the viewing. This is an exciting opportunity for us to expand our discussion of the pipeline! Students will be complete a follow-up assignment in the days to come. Please ask Ms. Mindlin any questions you may have.
Time to blog about our Granville Island field trip and the play “Spirit Horse” (April 25th). Begin TPCASTT poetry analysis paragraph. To be completed by end of class April 27th.
On Wednesday April 25th we will be travelling to the New Westminster Landmark cinemas to view the film Indian Horse. The film is based on the award winning novel written by the late Richard Wagamese. The story follows a young indigenous boy and his experience with residential school and escape through the sport of hockey.
This field trip will draw connections between physical education and indigenous perspectives/participation in sport.
