They will be learning how
to find a balance between work and personal life which includes developing a network of family, friends, and community members to support and broaden their career awareness and options.

The goals of English 9 are to begin the development of language proficiency in reading, writing and oral communication. Students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of concepts and ideas in varying forms of literature and develop abilities to draw conclusions and defend them sensibly. As well, this course will expose students to the conventions of language so that they will be able to edit, revise and reorganize their work. Improved use of the language will also develop students’ understanding of how language works and allow them to use it purposefully to communicate with others. As well, being able to read, view and listen to a variety of different texts to which students respond through visual, written and oral means adds to the ability to synthesize ideas, draw conclusions and make connections. Assessment: A school exam worth 20% of the final mark is a requirement of this course.
