Why Blog?

The intention of this blog is threefold. First and foremost it is an attempt to GO GREEN by limiting (not eliminating) the use of paper in our classroom while encouraging both the students and teachers to embrace modern technology.   This blog is also an excellent organizational tool that encourages students to work independently while opening up new lines of communication between the students and their teacher. Since computer access is what is required to hand in your assignments, when one is away on the date of a deadline absent students will be required to access a computer so they may complete and or hand in their work. As such, if one is absent it is their responsibly to check the blog and keep up to date with the coursework. Therefore, very few, if any, excuses will be tolerated for students who hand in their assignments late.

All written assignments should be emailed to Jodi Miller2 @tdsb.on.ca

Finally, this is not a Virtual English Course; if you miss 5 days of school-you will be demitted from the program!

 

Classroom Guidelines decided by the entire class on April 21, 2010

    As the years have gone by music altered and changed my perspective and the way I think. Music even changed the way I dress and present myself to others.Music helps motivate me to create my own beats, sounds and lyrics and because I am able to play some instruments, creating those sounds and beats are effortless.When I am feeling angry and tense, music sometimes prevents me from doing something that I will one day regret.Finally, the soothing, relaxing beats and lyrics sometimes helps me to fall asleep and aid the process of getting up in the morning.As a result music plays a major parting my life. It helps me to wake up in the morning and helps me fall asleep at night. Without music my life would be extremely difficult.

    Music is something relaxing in my life.
    I listen to music when I am stressed and it helps me calm down. I play music myself, and sometimes when I play music I get in to it so much that I am not there anymore, and is just a sound going to my head that is keeping me going and feeling good. Music is power full and I haven’t found anything that would help me out as much as music. When I am driving I have my music playing, I can’t find anything better than music to keep me focused even when I work out. There is one more think that I need to mention, it’s the time when I do yoga. When I do yoga I play spiritual music which helps me to stay relaxed. In general I think music is a very useful tool that I can always bring to my life, and I also encourage to other people to use music in their life.
