  1. You should print it out on an A3 sheet (with plenty of room around it for annotations the image ) and annotate using OPPVL. 
  2. Remember you should use the worksheet , as a checklist to make sure you cover everything in your analysis.
  3. State what you think the overall message of the cartoon is.
  4. Once you have finished annotating your cartoon please scan it and add this links on this page
  5. You will have 2 minutes to present this to this class next lesson so make sure you are prepared and check over once again that you’ve covered everything. Note! If you don’t want to stand in front of the class it’s OK to sit at your desk and address your cartoon projected on the screen as the cable is long enough to reach all desks.

When you have finished you will do a reflection about the skills you think you are focusing on and developing. See this doc  Google doc where students have identified some obvious ATLs for this unit.



Grade 9 cover work Friday Nov 2nd – ATL reflections and Intro to history

Part 1 – Reflection on last assignment

  1. Look at the PDF that outlines the ATLs.
  1. Pick 2 specific skills from each of the different skill clusters that you feel you developed while working on this assignment.
  2. Post a video explaining how you developed each skill, providing evidence from your process and/or product.

E.g. Skill 1: The first skill I’d like to talk about is from the Thinking Skills cluster, specifically, Developing Arguments under Critical Thinking Skills. I feel I developed this through…evidence…etc.

You could use flipgrid to do this and link it to your ATL portfolio.  If you don’t want to do a video then simply reflect on your ATL portfolio.

Part 2 –  Intro to History

  1. Choose Three History Bites episodes from the list here, which you can then find here and watch.

You need to note the techniques they’re using to present the history in a fun and interesting way, as well as how they see aspects of social history which we will be looking at in class. Again you can do this on flipgrid or notes.
