The English curriculum is designed to assist students in acquiring the skill, attitudes, and knowledge they will need to meet the everyday requirements of life and to deepen their understanding and appreciation of literature. Proper program selection assists students in reaching these goals.
Choosing the right English Course for you
The English 10-1, 20-1, 30-1 stream is appropriate for students intending to pursue further academic studies at the university level. The English 10-2, 20-2, 30-2 stream is designed for students intending to go to post-secondary institutions other than university. There is some flexibility in transferring from the academic stream to the general stream.
English 30-1 and 30-2 are subject to a provincial diploma exam which determines 30% of the student’s final grade in these courses.
