Socials 11-1: Exam prep: essays
Today, we started by reading some sample essays and seeing how they would be marked against the 6-point holistic scale. We then looked at a sample "brainstorm" t-chart from an essay. We also took thirty exam topics and categorized them A) Canada and the world: History and, B) Canada and the world: Geography in order to see which command words appeared most often and to see how some themes are more popular than others. Tomorrow we'll do some group brainstorming and prewriting for our last class together. Practice those on-line exams.
