We have three great ideas...
But we only have enough time to develop TWO of them into fun, engaging and exciting courses for 2021-2022.
We need your help to decide.
English (ENG1D) is designed to develop verbal communication, reading, writing, and media literacy skills that you’ll need for success in high school – and life! You’ll analyse literary texts from contemporary and historical periods by Jewish and Israeli authors, interpret informational and graphic texts, and create texts of your own in a variety of forms.
Although it’s designed for Grade 9 learners, it is also open to students in Grade 8 who are keen to get high school started early!
Canadian Jews & Sports (CHC2D) explores the story of Jews in Canada through their participation in and involvement with sports. In the process, you’ll explore how social, economic, political developments impacted the lives of Canadians since 1914. You’ll also track how Canadian identity evolved because to the contributions of key individuals, organizations, and events.
The Writer’s Craft (EWC4U) is all about WRITING. Sharpen your skills and develop your unique voice across a variety of genres!
