In this sense, Canada is an attic in which we have stored American and British literature without considering our own (Davies, Letters in Canada 426). No wonder Canadian students have difficulties both recognizing appreciating their own culture. Often the Canadian literature that is studied in schools is dated. This includes works such as Mordecai’s Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz or Lawrence’s Stone Angel. Fifth Business, which was published in 1970 (over 35 years ago) is still in many courses studied in Grade 12.

Anson 1 Clarissa Anson Mr. DiZio ENG4U July 5th, 2013 Analysing Canadian Literature The importance of Canadian literature is not emphasized enough in a Grade 12 English course. Graduating students should have a clear understanding on Canadian literature to apply to their own works. While good writers exist in all cultures, Ontario students should only study Canadian writers to become more familiar with our literature. This is a crucial part for Canadian writer success because we need to focus on our own Canadian culture despite being surrounded by other cultures, promote and establish our own writers instead of focusing on international writers, and lastly, we need to encourage young Canadian authors. Students in Ontario taking English should only study Canadian literature because we are completely swamped and more influenced by the American culture around us.
Legal and Ethical Implications for Classroom Management Legal and Ethical Implications for Classroom Management Grand Canyon University EDU520N 1/20/10 Legal and Ethical Implications for Classroom Management In this paper I will be discussing several articles relative to the legal and ethical implications of classroom management. I will summarize each article as it relates to the rights and responsibilities of students, teachers and parents. I will also discuss the repercussions classroom management has on children with exceptional needs. I will conclude with how these findings effect my own personal classroom management beliefs. The first article I will summarize is Corporal Punishment and Its Implications for Exceptional Children.

Educational Requirements The course that is offered at Loyalist College requires that you have one of the following: OOD/OSSGD or equivalent with courses at least the general level, grade 12 English OR mature applicant. Reading and writing at a grade 10 level, CPR and First Aid Training, a Criminal Record Check and a clean bill of health are all required in order to enroll in the Personal Support Workers course. At Humber College in Toronto, the PSQ course is quite similar. One thing that is different is that at Humber College, you may complete the CPR course while attending the PSW course, whereas at Loyalist College, it is required to be completed prior to enrollment. In addition, the Ontario Government expects al interested in taking the personal support workers program to immunize themselves against the Hepatitis B virus prior to beginning the training placement.
* Ensure that, if you do quote briefly from a book or other source, you reference the quote by using quotation marks “ “ and name the source (e.g. author and title). * Ensure that, if you have been working with others as a group, you don’t copy from others, but offer only your own work for assessment. We encourage students to collaborate but collusion to commit fraud must be avoided. * Ensure that, in practical classes, all work must be seen as ongoing by your tutor.
The school’s dress code sets a path for students to have a right to individuality, to make choices and to express their personality through clothing. Students who feel more comfortable in their own clothing will have a greater desire of attending school every day. One of Darwin High School’s dress code’s main purposes is to protect the student’s personal safety while attending school. School activities can be harmful to a student’s person safety, for example, practicals in a science laboratory. The school’s dress code prevents students from exposing their skin, as a

All authors write with an intended purpose; to entertain, persuade, inform, express etc. knowledge is gained from texts that inform us, theses text though can be valuable and enlightening, but can also be deceptive and untrustworthy. Through what we are reading the author has the ability to manipulate the information within the text to suit the preferred perspective. For this reason it is important that we develop a critical lens to challenge the multiple messages within those texts. This requires the readers to be able to analyse beneath the surface of the text rather than simply accepting and following the author's perspective.
