First of all, I hope you are all doing well. I know that this year has been a little different to how we might have expected and we have all had to adapt the way we are learning and teaching but the good news is that we can still be connected via our online platforms.
The HUB has been running online for these first few months for 3rd to 8th grade students on the Google Classroom platform. There has been some amazing work there so congratulations to all the students who have been participating.
We will be sharing some of the work that has been done in the HUB online soon as well as some outstanding work from the English department so….watch this space!
Due to the difficult moment Chile is going through, the 2019 English Day is canceled until further notice. We have been working hard to find the best solutions and make sure all the effort the students have put on so far can be appreciated and shared with our school community.

Remember that you have THREE things to prepare for:
-Practice by looking up new examples of art on the internet and analyzing them with your friends. (You can see winning art from ArtPrize here.) Remember to make comments about all three “C’s” and learn relevant vocabulary to help you express your ideas.
The formal presentation:
-Prepare your powerpoint according to the instructions.
-Complete the vocabulary worksheet by thinking of terms that are related to YOUR favorite kinds of art, or the art you might see in the panel. You can steal terms from Quizlet and use that website to study: Useful Vocabulary.
You MUST have the original paper to complete the quiz. If not, you will receive a list of words from Mr. VanderZee based on the website.
