Letter of Complaint
Write a letter of complaint to the manufacturer of Sudzo soap, based on this scenario:
The manufacturers of Sudzo soap claim in their ads that teenagers everywhere are using Sudzo. Some teenagers interviewed as part of the ad said that they are now so popular since they started using Sudzo that they do not have time to do schoolwork. The ad asks its audience if they too want to be handsome (or beautiful) and gain lots of new friends. However, since you started to use Sudzo soap, you have had some problems and are losing all your friends (you have grown profuse amounts of hair on your knuckles and knees, your fingernails have turned light green, and people avoid you because you have a strange new odour.)
Remember to do the following:
· Make a plan for your writing! What are the ideas you want to get across.
· Aim for 4-5 paragraphs (1 for intro, 2-3 for body, 1 for conclusion)
· Be creative but don’t go WAY over the top.
· Want to see rough draft for Friday’s class
Lang.Arts 7W: Students are to complete questions 2 & 3 on p.25 of text. Also, students copied the following question down off the board, "Write a comparison of the written excerpt of My Left Foot to the movie excerpts shown in class. Compare the two forms (how were they the same, how were they different) and explain ways in which the different forms affected you. You may use p.65 of your textbook which discusses the techniques used in video."
The link for the video shown in class is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTysQF15PHE

Grade 7W = students in class today finished presenting their oral recitations of the poem "Local Hero" by Bernice and Gordon Korman. They will recieve their marks in tomorrow's class. We began peer-editing our memoirs written and inspired from the textbook story "The Man." In tomorrow's class we will continue that revision and start good copies.
Grade 8 = students were spending class completing assigned questions on K2: Dreams & Reality #'s 1-6 on p.21. Those who were not finished by end of flex took the textbook home to complete the questions. Expected for tomorrow, the correcting of those questions and that #6 is in draft format (ie: students have their thought bubbles written out with a clear expectation fo what they plan to present as a scene and background for their posters).
Grade 7W Drama = today's class saw us begin the reader's theatre of "Lightning Larry." All students have been assigned a part and should begin familiarizing themsevles with the few lines they have (the most any student would have is about 12 lines.)
Lang. Arts Gr. 7 = complete questions 1, 2, & 3 on p.13 of your textbook.
