Courses & Course Information:
LEADERSHIP 11 (BA), LEADERSHIP 12 (BA)
These courses are designed for students wishing to further develop their leadership skills. Students will be involved in the development, organization, planning, and execution of a variety of school-based initiatives. Leadership 11/12 is not a classroom based course; in fact, only 25% of the mark is derived from written coursework whereas 75% of the mark is attained via practical application of leadership within the school. Students will be required to provide a minimum of 75 volunteer hours during the school year.
Leadership 11/12 is a linear course and hence, there is a great deal of flexibility in terms of students meeting the course requirements.
PEER TUTORING 11(BA)
This course will be offered to students who are conscientious and enjoy helping others. Under the supervision of school staff members, peer tutors assist students in one or more curricular areas: ESL, Skill Development or the Learning Resource Centre. Peer Tutors will be responsible for working with individual students to assist with the school program. All tutors keep teaching and planning logs. Students who take this course for grade 11 credit will be expected to do more challenging work assignments and demonstrate their skill in helping others. Students contemplating careers in a helping occupation, such as teaching, medicine, community support, social work, or early childhood education, can benefit from the tutoring experience. (AS)
