2 Compulsory History Courses in Grade 10:
  • ​Canadian History (Applied or Academic)
  • Civics

Grade 10 History courses teach:

  • ​Critical Reading
  • Writing
  • Research
  • Critical Thinking
  • Creative Thinking

  • ​Understanding of other cultures
  • Social Justice
  • Working with others

  • Political, economic, legal and social history of Canada
  • The democratic system
  • How to be an active citizen
These skills are essential to success in:
  • ​Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (in Gr. 10)
  • ALL senior level courses (Science, Business, English, Law, Economics)
  • Post Secondary programs including:
    • Engineering
    • Life sciences and medicine
    • Business
    • Politics
    • Law

These skills take time to learn!

History is much more than facts, names, and dates. The course content is taught through the critical thinking, reading, and writing skills, which need practice and time for feedback. Taking Gr.10 Canadian History in summer school does not allow for the development of these skills, and puts future success in at risk.

Gr. 11 and 12 History Courses:
  • ​Ancient Civilizations (Gr. 11)
  • Modern Western History (Gr. 12)
  • Law (Gr. 11 and 12)
  • Politics (Gr. 11 and 12)
