In English 10, students can expect to learn all manner of skills and to cover a wide variety of literary and not quite so literary topics. Here in British Colombia English 10 is split into two modules and here at our school we have chosen Composition and Literature Studies.
The two courses put emphasis on creativity, writing, presenting, and being able to support a position. What sets this course apart from other English 10 classes you might find is the number of choices you have when it comes to completing assignment.
Outside of our purely written activities most projects and group work assignments you will see will give you a number of options for completion. Whether they be making a play, performing a rap, or create Adobe flash movie, it's all up to you. Due date depending of course...
To do well in English 10 students must be willing to take steps to meaningfully improve upon the things they are good at and those they struggle with.
ELL Foundations is a course to designed to help students work on their reading & writing, listening & speaking, communication, and technological skills. This course will cover a wide variety of topics from 'how to get organized' to 'making a multi-media presentation about something you like.'
To do well in ELL Foundations you have to be willing to authentically engage, to challenge yourself, and to be willing to make (and learn from) your mistakes. One of the unique features of this course is the incorporation of the Microsoft Office Suite into most of the students' activities whether they be PowerPoints, Video Editing, Newspaper making or sound editing.
Entrepreneurship is a unique class because of how much input the students have over the direction it takes. The basic topics we will be covering are identifying the characteristics of an entrepreneur, the product development cycle, ethics and good business practices, pitching, marketing and how to manage your finances.
The rest is up to the students; whether that be which fieldtrips we go on; what product they want to create; what people, groups, or charities they want to partner with; etc. In Entrepreneurship you have to be willing to take chances, make mistakes, and to look at the world from an additive perspective.
A perspective where, 'what could I add or change to make things better' is only the beginning.
