Students will analyse literary texts from contemporary and historical periods, interpret informational and graphic texts, and create oral, written, and media texts in a variety of forms. An important focus will be on the use of strategies that contribute to effective communication. The course is intended to prepare students for the Grade 10 academic English course, which leads to university or college preparation courses in Grades 11 and 12. How This Course Supports the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations: The primary goal of Catholic education is to graduate young men and women who are discerning believers in the saving story of Christ and who become responsible citizens, based on the centrality of a tradition of church social teaching which gives primacy to the common good. This course will challenge students to examine gospel values in the context of the literature they read. The course invites students to be effective communicators who relate honestly and sensitively to literature and to each other. It encourages reflective, creative and holistic thinking and invites students to experience vicariously the choices of characters they read about and thereby become open-minded citizens who examine their own life options; it develops self- directed, responsible, life-long learners. How this Course Supports the competencies of Choices Into Action : The English curriculum is based on the belief that language learning is critical to responsible and productive citizenship, and that all students can become successful learners. The curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills that they need to achieve this goal. It aims to help students become successful learners. The study of English at the secondary level supports the students’ exploration of subject-related careers as well as providing the opportunity to effectively use written and oral communication skills that are valuable in all employment areas.
