This is a Powerpoint that I created, that I show them after we do a lot of play-based games on the first day.
It can easily be tweaked to fit what you do in your own course and school.
It gives them...
-What the course is all about
-An over-view of the course and what our units will be ( this is really important to "hook" them on taking it again in grade 10 because they see the cool stuff we do)
-tells them about the clubs/trips we do
-the last slide is "look around you - what makes this space different from your other classes?"
...this sparks some amazing discussion about how the physical room is like a theatre space, and how open and unique it is (sets the tone for the whole course!)
Hope it helps!
Just a visual to get them pumped about what we will be doing.
