Rationale for Grades 9/10 Learning Strategies Courses:
 
  • These courses will focus on the pupil’s needs and aspirations and involve accommodations to the kind, breadth, depth, and pace of the pupil’s academic experiences.
  • A diagnostic aspect (included within the IEP) will aid the pupil in becoming more aware of strengths, needs, and learning styles.
    The pupil will be introduced to strategies for learning that can be applied to the regular program course work.
  • The learning strategies and techniques will be taught (when possible) as determined in the pupil’s needs assessment.
  • The concepts taught will be reinforced through work with the instructor on an individual basis and through work in small groups.
 
Rationale for Grades 11/12 Learning Strategies Courses:
  • The importance of the pupil’s ability to become more independent in utilizing learning strategies in all learning situations will be of significant importance in these programs.
  • Learning strategies and techniques will continue to be taught as determined in the pupil’s needs assessment but with more emphasis placed upon the pupil’s facility to develop these strategies.
  • Developing and enhancing the pupil’s perception of the notions of responsibility and accountability in the learning experience is a primary focus.
