Week 10

Language & Literature

This week we attempted our formative assessment on persuasive appeals (ethos, pathos and logos) and gained a deeper understanding by reflecting on the feedback .We worked on vocabulary building by assuming the meaning of a word from the context, learning strategies to remember the meaning and spellings and then finally using them in a sentence. We also understood how various words have gained different meaning over a period. Furthermore, we revised report writing and grammar concepts to prepare for the forthcoming summative assessment.

After learning the theory of different scales and clefs, we practiced it by playing different tonalities on keyboard. We are learning how to play major and minor scales on the keyboard using right finger patterns. With continuous practice, we will have a thorough understanding of the tones/sounds of different types of scales as each one has a distinct character and expression. We were explained our next formative and summative assessments in which we would use these scales to create our own melodies.   By: ArshAgarwalMYP 2B
