Thank you for your excellent work these past weeks on your blog assignments. Just a reminder that over the break, you will be completing two blog homework assignments, one on December 22 and the second on December 29.
If you feel, over the break, that you have the energy to work on a blog post for our site, please don’t hesitate to work on one and email it to me. I’ll be glad to give it a bit of an edit and post it over the break. Posts can be on any topic including class work, the holidays, or try your hand and discussing a news article or current event!
For this Thursday’s assignment, check out this link: http://www.vancourier.com/vancouver-special/kensington-cedar-cottage
This was an article done last year about our school neighbourhood. There are a lot of short articles connected to this site. Take a read through at least four of the short articles about the community for inspiration, then write your own short article (at least 3 paragraphs) about an aspect of your community. It may be a feature of the neighbourhood, such as a park, a regular community event, a moment in history or a personal reflection on the community.
Please try to choose a unique topic. Also edit for capitals, punctuation and to make sure your article makes sense and addresses the topic you meant to address.
