Welcome to the Blog for Room 217 at Dovercourt Public School. In 2010, back in Room 52, at Alexander Muir/Gladstone Avenue PS, the idea for developing a blog took place. It is a place to begin lessons, open up discussions, and display the learning taking place.
So, why I may never find myself in Room 52 again, it serves as a reminder of a school community that was central to my development as an educator. Thanks for visiting.

Before attending the South Conference Cross Country Championships I was thinking about ways to approach the completion of the Autobiography. So, I came up with the idea of developing jot notes for each of the key sections of the assignment:
Think of this as the Pre-writing portion of the assignment. It is a form of planning which will help you, when it is time to write. I did a sample chapter for you the other day and will take another topic (from the 4 chapters I am responsible for) and do some jot notes and post them up on the blog.
Not sure what "jot notes" are? I did a search to find a sample.
Basically, for each of the sections you will "jot" down some of the ideas for each of the topics. The one, above, was found from the Internet. As I said, I will post a sample over the course of this weekend.
