We will have a guitar on the trip too, so you can practise as well. I really think you need to consider continuing with this project and band next year. You have a great foundation to build on now.
Focus on fine tuning what you are going to perform on in-depth night. Make it sound the best possible. You have taken on some challenging skills with the guitar.
The comparison between the reaction for MacDonald’s policies and Ferguson was interesting. I like how you compared something in the present to something in the past so you could get a better understanding of what the situation must have felt like for the people back then.
It’s good that you can connect what you learned in grades 4 and 5 to what you are now learning! It was interesting how you brought up the idea of how Coquitlam may have been different from how it is today if the Europeans had not bothered the Aboriginals.

You pose some thoughtful questions and areas for further exploration. A couple of thoughts from your friendly neighbourhood VP and former Gleneagle SS teacher with a minor in history.
Why did you use the word atrocities to describe what happene…
Thank you Ms. Mulder!
I have put in some thought about my display, so I hope to have another post with my completed display plan up soon once I’ve organized my thoughts into a conclusive plan!
Thank you, Ms. Mulder. I take pride in the research, and my mentor has helped to build my forensic pathology knowledge with his practical experience as in-depth night draws near. For the presentation, I am planning on showing people the mysteries of an…
