Punctuation review grade 8

Hi grade 8 students,

For the consolidation exam, you will have to review the use of punctuation. In order to do so, you will need to sign in to EDPUZZLE.

Watch how to sign in in the video below.

 

The codes for your classes are as follows:

8A: zutwane

8B: azakava

8C: olorrob

 

 

SUMMATIVE GRADE 9 UNIT 1

​You will write the imaginary journal of a person who lived during the time of the Pilgrims or later and will tell their experience. This imaginary person can be a sailor, a puritan woman, a slave, a slave owner, one of the passengers of the Mayflower or any other person of the time.

You will write two or more journal entries where you talk about their experience in at least 600 words. These entries have to be consistent with the time they lived in; the writing should reflect clearly the time this person lived, the traditions they had, the clothes they wore or even the food they ate. It’s not you have to actually write about all of these topics but you should know about them before beginning the writing.

As a first step, each student has to create the imaginary biography of this person, where they were from, their occupation, family if any, and a brief description of the difficult situation they went through. You can use the example biographies of Bradford’s, Mary Rowlandson’s and Olaudah Equiano’s.

Second step. they will write a first draft of a diary entry where they talk about one day in the difficult experience they went through. This should be at least 300 words long and as explained must reflect the time and context where the person lived. Again, you can imitate the style and the content of the readings done in class.
