The Week That Was!

Here’s a little bit of what our e2 students were up to this week!

AWOL (grade 10)

The grade 10s visited the innovation pod (temporarily located in Lansdowne park) where they met with Nicole Yves-Allison (executive director of the Ottawa Music Industry Coalition and co-host of the Love Local Music podcast). Nik shared her expertise and wisdom on the subject of podcasting. This workshop acted as a catalyst for the students’ own podcast project in English, which they will be undertaking throughout the month of November.

FSL (Grade 11)

The students presented their end of session project on La déportation des Acadiens this week.  To finish our session on a cultural note, the students chose two traditional recipes one Acadienne, la ploye and one Cajun, le gumbo. We went grocery shopping for our ingredients on Thursday and on Friday morning the students prepared and shared their recipes with the other students and staff of the school.

Civics (grade 10)

On Thursday, the Element students had the opportunity to participate in Student Vote for the 2018 municipal elections. They were one of nearly 2,000 schools across the province involved in this campaign to help educate youth on the election and voting process. Our Element municipal election results will be announced on Tuesday October 23rd, once the official election polls are closed.

Integrated Arts (grade 9)

Students are preparing an independent study, in which they are creating an art piece in a medium of their choice, based on our
outing to the Carbide Mill last week. Today, students participated in a peer review session. They were asked to set-up individual stations and rotate the room in order to observe the initial work of their classmates. The last required step is to provide constructive feedback to their classmates.
