Home Self-Study Unit: Senior Secondary (SS) In response to the sudden pronouncement regarding forced school closures in Nigeria it is most important that you spend quality time at home on the challenges we have set you. In total the time you should profitably spend upon them amounts to approximately 12/15 hours over a two week period to fit in with your family circumstances and arrangements. Do as much as you can. Do not forget that, as seniors, you must also read as much as possible and include modern fiction, classics, African writers, newspapers and magazines in your selections. There is a widespread neglect of reading among young people in this "digital" age and this is seriously harming their ability to communicate effectively and stunts their intellectual development. Speak English often and discuss issues with your parents, tutors, siblings and/or friends. There are optional challenges in reading and writing for those of you who find more time and inclination to devote to your studies. TOPICS: NUMBER BASE SYSTEM. i. Conversion from one base to base 10 ii. Conversion of decimal fraction in one base to base 10 iii. Conversion of number from one base to another base iv. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of number bases. Application to computer programming Refer to these notes with an adult if possible to make sure you understand what to do. You are allowed help with the tasks as long as the "helper" makes a note that the work was completed "with support". They should also specify the level of support: little, some, considerable etc. Parents are encouraged to comment upon your attitude towards work and the effort you are making. The work you do will be of great benefit to your learning and also to your teachers who will build upon the progress you make and differentiate future challenges to best meet your needs. The tasks set should be given your fullest attention as they will be assessed and included in determining not only the level you are working at but what your next targets should be in order to grow success. The self-study pack is designed in such a way that you can respond to the challenges on many levels and you may find that on some you take a straightforward basic approach whereas on others you are able to give greater detail and develop your ideas more fully. Don't worry if you find anything difficult we need to know what you can't do in order to accelerate your progress! Discovering only what you CAN do is a waste of your time. You should WELCOME feedback which moves you forward. Develop a positive attitude towards your learning. The following suggestions are examples of success criteria. Follow them closely. Reading Comprehension  Read questions very carefully and make sure you understand exactly what is required before you begin. If in doubt, ASK.  You should answer all questions using complete sentences.  Remember: When answering more complex questions on texts you should attempt to first make your POINT then, if possible, give an EXAMPLE from the text to illustrate your point and finally EXPLAIN the relevance of the quotation you chose. Writing Skills  Make sure all your written work is completed with an audience (reader) and purpose in mind. This is a measure of how effective your use of language is. Choose your words and tone well. Know what success looks like before you begin a task.  Use the appropriate vocabulary to effectively describe, persuade, explain etc. according to the task.  Develop your ideas fully before rushing on.  Use precise language. Make effective vocabulary choices… don't use "said" if "muttered" or "roared" is more appropriate. 

 Use paragraphs effectively to group sentences.  Write neatly using one size and style. Join your letters correctly. TAICO SS Home Self Study Pack. September 2014 SS Challenge 1 Using commas in lists accurately and effectively. It is easy to go wrong with commas and thereby lose valuable marks. Use them only when you are sure that they are correct. This challenge will develop your skills. Challenge 1 Introduction: 1)Commas replace and or but in a list of items. The final and, without a comma, is usually kept before the last item. In her school bag Kasia kept exercise books, textbooks, pens, pencils, a calculator and her mobilephone. 2) Commas also divide a list of adjectives used to describe a person, place, thing or idea. Here is a list by Charles Dickens describing the miser Scrooge in A Christmas Carol. Scrooge! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner! 3) You can also divide a list of verbs (Scrooge again!) The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, shrivelled his cheek, stiffened his gait. 4) Here is Dickens again, this time describing a steam train journey of the 1840s in his novel, Dombey and Son. Here the commas divide a list of phrases. Away, with a shriek , and a roar, and a rattle, through the fields, through the woods, through the corn, through the hay, by the heath, by the orchard, by the park, by the garden, over the canal, across the river, where the sheep are feeding, where the barge is floating, where the dead are lying, where the factory is smoking, where the stream is running, where the great cathedral rises, away, with a shriek, and a roar, and a rattle. Read the sentence aloud, pausing for breath at each comma. What does the rhythm of this long sentence remind you of? Now you try it! Attempt 2 or 3 examples for each. Challenge 1 a) Write some list sentences of your own. First, try some with nouns. Make your own choices or use the following: My best friends are… (add the list) My dream football team would include… (add the names) b) Now try using lists of adjectives. A _____, _____, _____, woman entered the room. c) Finally try lists of verbs. To -demonstrate her fitness, Taleyah… ( swam, jumped, ran, rode) Add a word or two to each verb to make it livelier: "swam ten lengths", for example. d) Read the extract from Dombey and Son again. Write your own description of a car journey or a bus ride or a cycle ride in the same style, writing a list of things that you see as you pass. TAICO SS Home Self Study Pack. September 2014 Challenge 1 continued A list sentence can be very powerful in serious writing and in speeches. In Gulliver's Travels by Swift, Gulliver visits a land where horses are the intelligent rulers and men their ugly slaves. Gulliver tells the horse king about the terrors of human warfare. The commas hammer home the horrors of human war. e) Imagine that you were talking to the horse king. List for him some of the latest weapons and methods of fighting today and horrible scenes of modern warfare. Use this opening if it helps: I told the king about… (Continue the list) Can commas ever be exciting? They are sometimes, in great speeches. On 4 June 1940, Winston Churchill, the British Prime Minister, made an important speech. It was to inspire the nation to face the then very likely threat of an invasion by Germany's Nazis led by Hitler. At the time everything seemed hopeless but he was determined to resist the oppressors and fight on no matter what happened. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender… f) Imagine your home town has been invaded by an alien species who want planet earth for themselves. You and other human survivors are about to attack their spacecraft. As leader of the defence force, you need to get everyone ready for the attack. Write the last paragraph of your speech. Use a list with powerful commas to inspire your listeners.
