Overview

Students coming to CBe-learn for Grade 10 courses will have a lot of flexibility and choice in their program. Although the default course structure for Grade 10 students will be a semestered program, students will have the ability to choose an all-year course scehedule in consultation with Student Services.

 

All Year

Students will take all four of their core academic courses throughout the whole school year; starting in September, and ending in June.

This is in alignment with some High Schools, and is similar to a Middle School experience for students.

This choice must be discussed with Student Services at the start of the semester.

 

Semester

Students finish their core academic courses in a semestered system, as they would in many traditional High Schools.

Using this system, students may pick two core academic subjects in Fall, and two more in Winter.

This structure will be the default for all Grade 10 students, unless otherwise decided.

Students would supplement their academic courses with other online options, such as Phys Ed 10, Social Sciences, or a CTS online course.

Dream Catcher

Students in Grade 10 courses may also be put into the Dream Catcher term, starting in October, which will allow them flexibility to extend their course time to the end of the school year, or to accelerate through their course quickly. Because of this flexibility, students will be able to customize their course program with their teacher once they are registered and have access to the course.

Work Plans

Like all students at CBe-learn, students enrolled into Grade 10 courses will have the ability to accelerate or extend their due dates, within the confines of the course. Students will be asked to create their own due dates and a work plan based on information provided to them from the teacher. Teachers will review the work plans with students on a regular basis, to ensure they are meeting their academic goals for the semester, and remain on track to be successful.

Because some students will be working in a semestered system, and some will be working all year, it is very important for students to actively communicate with their teachers about their intentions, their deadlines, and their ability to complete their work in a timely manner.

Grade 10 Course Planning

Students should discuss their plan for the school year with their guidance counsellor, and determine the best, personalized timetable from September through June. Students also need to consider if they are taking full-time courses with CBe-learn, or face-to-face courses at their community school. Two possible, and very different options, are presented below:
