ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS
Working with the foundation laid in junior high, high school English moves into breaking boundaries of expression to match context with purpose, allowing students to find the best vessel to carry their ideas.
English 10C (Combined) puts all students in the same space and allows them to understand whether the 10-1 or 10-2 stream is most beneficial for their learning needs. Students enrolled in this course will finish with credits in either 10-1 or 10-2, depending on which course best highlights their strengths and abilities. A minimum mark of 50% in the previous English Language Arts course completed is highly recommended. This course is also available at the AP level.
English 20-1 and 30-1 place emphasis on high-level critical and creative thinking, reading and writing. Successful completion of this stream is a requirement for post-secondary university programs. A minimum mark of 65% in the previous English Language Arts course completed is highly recommended. These courses are also available at the AP level.
English 10-2, 20-2 and 30-2 engage with a variety of texts, including those that have practical applications and draw from daily life experiences. Successful completion of this stream fulfils the requirements for an Alberta High School Diploma and is also suitable for post-secondary requirements to many college programs.
