Virtual Courses

VIRTUAL COURSES

Open to ALL Ontario high school students

HOW IT WORKS

Work at your own pace and have teacher support throughout the journey.

Our courses are designed so that students are able to work through the program at their own pace as permitted by their schedules. With so much uncertainty in the coming school year, this allows for maximum flexibility for the student to reach ahead in a manageable way.

Upon enrolment, students will be assigned a teacher that will be their learning partner until the completion of the course. All teachers are Ontario certified teachers and will be subject experts in the specific course of study.

The teacher’s role will be to facilitate the virtual learning through the differentiated instruction techniques in the course, and be available to the student throughout the program. The same teacher will assess the student’s work and provide descriptive feedback in line with the Ontario Ministry of Education Growing Success expectations.

Enrolment is on a continuous intake basis and one of our amazing teachers is waiting to facilitate the course as your learning partner.

LOCAL TRIPS

Add-ons

Each course will have 1-3 optional local Ontario excursions!

Powered by EduTravel

Optional field trips will take place on a weekend or a provincial-wide PD Day throughout the school year. Field trips are an opportunity to take advantage of on-site experiential learning that will enrich the learning and provide a deeper understanding of the course content.

Each field trip will be offered once in the fall (September-January) and again in the spring (February-June).

Field Trips will remain optional for the following reasons:

1) The excursion may not be feasible on the planned dates for health and safety reasons.

2) Students may not be able to access the field trip due to geographical reasons.

3) Field trips will be charged a minimal fee, in addition to the course fee.

OUR COURSES

Course Description:

Grade 9: Issues in Canadian Geography

Let us bring Geography to life! Geography is the study of the world, and despite our restrictions to travel, we have found ways to explore the world in wonderful and meaningful ways – by exploring outdoor parks and spaces and listening to stories as we make meaning of the curriculum to our lives. This course is designed for students to work at their own pace, with opportunities for virtual and optional excursions to local parks and green spaces, group collaboration and discussion as well as creativity and critical thinking. This course focuses on geographic issues that affect Canadians today. Students will explore the fundamental questions posed through geographic inquiry in order to develop a sense of place: What is where? Why there? Why care? This course will commit to acknowledging and respecting the relationship between First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples and the land.

Grade 11: Art History

Embark on a rich learning experience in which you will encounter many of the most significant and well-known works of art and architecture in the world. This course introduces students to a timeline of European Art History beginning at the heart of ancient Rome and working its way up to the height of Impressionism. Assignments will teach you how to look at art and discuss it critically. You will learn the language of art and apply it to your understanding of the world around you today, observing three basic themes in art: art is a reflection of the society that produced; significant periods in art history are usually an extension of or a reaction to the generation that preceded it; and, art has a tendency to go in cycles, from simple to complex and back to simple. These themes can then be applied to an examination of your own world, from the building where you live to your local community and beyond.

Grade 12: Art History

This course introduces students to a timeline of European Art History beginning at the heart of ancient Rome and working its way up to the height of Impressionism. Assignments will teach you how to examine art critically, looking at context and meaning. A major theme underlying your study will be: art is a reflection of the society that produced it and with that in mind, you will see the extent to which the idea of “humanism”, that is, a belief in the importance of the individual as something noble and important, is portrayed from one period of Western Civilization to the next, right up to today’s society. Along the way, you will develop your own ideas about what really matters in art and whether certain works deserve a place in history as “great works of art”.
