Canadian History Since World War One (CHC2D)
Canadian History Since World War One (CHC2D) explores Canada’s history since 1914. We’ll explore how Canada became what it is today through the stories and events often overlooked by traditional history courses.
Jews came to Turtle Island as immigrants and, in many instances, saw sports as a way to feel more Canadian.
As we delve into these stories, we’ll explore how social, economic, and political changes impacted the lives and identities of all Canadians.
Media Studies (EMS3O)
Media Studies is for learners in Grade 11-12 who are curious about how news and social media shape our understanding of the world, especially when it comes to Israel-Palestine.
You’ll get a deeper understanding of how both old and new media work and how to spot bias and misinformation. You’ll also learn how to analyze how media tells stories and what perspectives are included or left out. You’ll also learn how to create your own media content that is well-informed and well-researched.
World Religions and Belief Traditions: Perspectives, Issues and Challenges (HRT3M)
World Religions and Belief Traditions will take a look at how the religions of Rabbinic Judaism, Christianity, and Islam developed and changed during the Middle Ages. You’ll learn how each religion sought to answer big questions about the human experience while spreading their beliefs across the world. We’ll also examine how Jews as a minority interacted with a majority culture that was not their own.
Philosophy: Questions and Theories (HZT4U)
Philosophy: Questions and Theories is for big thinkers and folks who like to debate. Learners must have already earned a “U” credit to participate.
You’ll acquire an understanding of the nature of philosophy and how to use reason to better understand the world. You’ll also learn how to craft better arguments as you unpack the thinking of great minds like Plato, Aristotle, Maimonides, Descartes, Spinoza, Kant, Buber, Butler and the writers of The Good Place.
Chosen Food (IDC4U)
Chosen Food is an interdisciplinary course open to any high school student in Grade 11-12, or someone who has already earned a “U” credit.
You’ll learn about what makes food kosher, which one dish is eaten by Jews the world over and how hummus could bring peace to the Middle East – and MUCH MORE.
In the process, you’ll sharpen your critical thinking (and kitchen) skills and learn to prepare delicious dishes with experts and mavens from across the world!
World Cultures (HSC4M)
World Cultures is open to any high school student who has taken a university, college, or university/college preparation course in social sciences and humanities, English, or Canadian and world studies.
We will examine the nature of culture, how cultural identities are acquired, maintained, and transformed with a focus on the world of the Tanakh and the Jewish encounter with the great cultures of antiquity: Babylon, Assyria, Persia, and Greece.
