Today we had a shortened class due to the extended homeroom and the Grade 7 Meeting with Mr. Lambe. Upon our return, we completed National Empowerment and the questions in the workbook. This now means we have the booklet completed question 1-29. If you have missed any Socials classes, you need to have these questions completed.

Period 5 we had an extra Music class, so I took this class to make up for the lost Socials class on Day 7. We watched Greta Thunberg's presentation on Global Climate and used the follow up questions, How is she personally Empowered, How was her speech Politically Empowered, Socially Empowered and Nationally Empowering?
Excellent Discussion.
