G11 English Highlights of the week

G11 English Highlights of the week

Dear parents,

This week, in HL, we had a slot on discussion how to make points for the answer. This was discussed based on the texts given to students for the topic role of editing. We then had an activity where various sections of an article were jumbled and the students had to restructure it. This was followed by a discussion the next day so that students could understand well the logical progression of ideas in a text.

For SL, students prepared for their FOA and had to ensure submissions for the first draft of their written task.
