Community Classes are learning opportunities open to both TLA students and school-aged children from other schools. These classes are less than a full course; whereas a course meets the standards set out by the provincial curriculum such as what TLA currently offers via our Blended and Online systems (ie Online Humanities 8), Community Classes could be as short as a one-day, one-hour long instructional offering on dissecting a sheep’s eye, or it could be a weekly writing workshop that lasts for three months.

If you have questions about any of the programs being offered please direct them to Annette Flitton (aflitton@schoolathome.ca). Please note that in order for these classes to run there is a minimum number of students required. Each class has a different limit on spaces available so be sure to register early to secure your child’s spot!

Books and Board Games (Gr. 8-9) In Person – Prince George

Each session, students will come to class having read the assigned novel.

The first novel is  “In the Reign of Terror” by GA Henty which will need to be read by our first class, Jan 30. The second novel will be the Factory Girl by Barbara Greenwood and will need to be read by Feb. 13. TLA has copies of the novels that I can get to you once you are registered for the class. The focus of this group will be historical fiction touching on the French Revolution, Industrialization, Colonization, and World War. Together we will discuss the books, place the events on a timeline, and complete some book-related activities.
