Immigration Interview & Poetry Books

Posted on

Immigration Interviews

In our social study unit, we are learning more about immigration. While we research about different people groups who came to Canada over the years, we also collected questions to conduct an interview with someone who immigrated to Canada individually.

That’s where your support comes in. In the coming week the students will get a question sheet that will help them to interview someone who immigrated to Canada themselves. This person can be a family member, a neighbour, a church member, or whoever you know and is available to answer around 8-10 questions. The interview can be done in person or over the phone or whatever way the person is best reached. The interview needs to be done before May 23rd. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to email me at mellis@highroadacademy.com

Poetry Books

I am in the process of publishing a book of poetry that our class has written this year.  Each student will receive one book, with an option to order additional books.  I am planning to place the order this weekend and would like to know if anyone is interested in purchasing an additional book.  They are approximately $8 each.  Please email me at pgoosen@highroadacademy.com by Friday if you are interested in any additional poetry books.
