June Holiday Homework

EL is a skills-based subject. Like any skill, you need to practise consistently in order to be good. Anyone can complete the 2.4km run. But to complete it with a good timing, one needs to train for it. In the same way, if you want to do well for EL, you need to train for it. The June EL holiday homework is designed to help you train for your O-level. Do try to follow the given schedule as far as possible for your benefit.

Comprehension Practice
1) Complete Practice Paper 6, 7 and 8 (page 313 onwards) from the book "Distinction in O level English" you bought in Sec 3 and mark your own work. You should do 1 paper per week in the first 3 weeks of the school holidays. Bring your books for checking during the first lesson in Term 3.

2) Complete the handout on comprehension skills given out to you on the last day of school. If you did not receive the handout, there are some extra copies in my pigeon hole. Bring your completed work to class during the first lesson in Term 3. We will be starting lesson using this set of handouts.

Essay Practice
1) Select 12 questions from Project Ace found here. For these 12 questions, do a detailed essay plan as shown in the sample here. You should do 3 essay outlines a week. Start each essay outline on a new sheet of paper. Submit your essay outlines for checking on the first day of Term 3.

2) Redo Project Ace if you have not yet cleared it. You are not allowed to select a question which I have not marked for you. You have to choose one which I have marked and work on improving it. Submit your essay for marking on the first day of Term 3.

Organise your EL file
Organise your EL file. I will call for file check during the first week of Term 3. Students whose files were properly organised during the previous file check will be exempted.
