Ahoy, new students! Welcome back, students whom I've taught previously. I'm happy to see you all!
This is the home page for my class website. Basically, here you will find updates, class overviews, and whatnot that may prove extremely useful. If you look up slightly, to the bar under the banner photo (which I took myself in Belgium this summer thankyouverymuch), you'll find some awesome links to your class sites. I will post lessons, assignments, links, and other riveting stuff there. Don't be a stranger! Visit often! If you think I should post something (and haven't) you should definitely tell me.
Speaking of telling me, I just want to remind you that you can get in touch with me a number of ways. Let me list them for you.
(1) Email me. This is probably the easiest way to communicate with me, send me files, ask for extensions, or send me *unsolicited* compliments. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you look to the upper right corner of this website, you'll see a little envelope. This will link to a new email message to me if you don't want to copy & paste my email address.
(2) Comment on a post. This home page (Daily Work) is blog-like. You can leave a comment. In fact, if you've taken the time to read through all this, you should leave me a comment saying so (or leave an appropriate, yet funny, joke because I like jokes). To leave a comment, click "leave a comment" below and fill in the form. This commenting thing can actually be extra useful because you can see what your fellow classmates have asked, respond to them, ask them questions, or ask me questions.
(3) Tweet me. That's right. I'm hip and happening. I have a student/teacher twitter account that you can contact me at. I also have a professional learning twitter handle, so don't worry about following that one (it's teacher-y stuff and likely won't interest you). Just follow @MissThibeault for updates. You can tweet me questions and I usually answer somewhat promptly. Much like the email, there is a little icon in the upper right. It is shaped like an adorable little bird.
(4) Ask me in class. This may seem a little bit old-school, but it is the easiest way to get the best answer from me. Having said that, if it is midnight and you have a burning question, please don't leave it until the next day.
As mentioned in class this week, you can rewrite any tests or assignments from this semester up until this coming Wednesday. Please fill out the form below (the Rewrite for is for tests; the Redo form is for assignments) and hand it to me on Monday. I am available for help on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at lunch as well as until 4 pm. I am also available before school.
Happy New Year! Welcome back, everyone. We have just a few short weeks until finals.
Ethics 10 - Monday, we started into an overview of the important terms and concepts when we talk about the Church as a whole. We will continue with that on Tuesday. Grinch questions are due on Tuesday to correct in class. We will spend the rest of the week digging into the church as an institution.
Science 91 - Monday, we started to explore what makes Earth habitable. We will research other planets in our solar system this week to see if we could live there. We will also branch out beyond our solar system! Your research is due to be presented on Thursday.
ELA 9 - We will do a double lesson next week to make up our lost hour from Monday. We are starting Oedipus Rex this week. I will post a link to the text under your class page. We are doing some introductory activities early in the week. We'll start reading the play as a class later in the week.
Social 9 - We have work periods on Monday (2 hours) and Tuesday (1 hour). Presentations run all afternoon Wednesday. Thursday and Friday we will start learning about Treaties.
Why, howdy there! I'm Ms. Thibeault, a teacher at Miller Comprehensive Catholic High School in Regina. My favourite colour is pink. I'm also the Yearbook Advisor. Email me or stop by my classroom if you want to get involved!
