CompuTech 8

Learn to compute with TLA’s Head of Technology, Mr. Hewlett, and your very own Raspberry Pi (latest version)! This course guides students through the basics of computing, from hardware to programming to real-world applications, using a flexible project-based approach focused on the Raspberry Pi computing platform. This approach ensures a solid foundation, while allowing students to engage with computing at multiple grade-levels (Grades 8-10), skill-levels (beginner through intermediate), and interests (software development, web-design, robotics, and the Internet of Things).

An interest in technology, the creativity to invent/explore Pi-tech projects, a willingness to invest whatever time and resources are necessary to develop those projects are all that is needed for this course.

A synchronous online option is available to out-of-towners using video-conferencing and other remote-presence technologies.

Welcome to Humanities 7-8 Blended! We are on an exciting adventure together, as we weave through Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, and World Exploration history, while improving all of our Language Arts skills. It will be a diverse year, including research, group work, oral and media presentations, mapping, videos to watch, and novels to read!

Our year consists of three terms, each with an average of 9 classes. It will be a push to cover the entire curriculum, and thus there will be video/reading/writing homework assigned for weeks when we are not in class. If homework is done and completed when assigned and due, this will be a very successful year for you!

As well, this course runs in a FLIPPED classroom model. This means that much of your research will be done at home, through readings, short videos or podcasts, and your group work and assignments will be worked on in class.

Major Units & Topics

Because this class is a humanities class, Socials and English are woven together, sometimes seamlessly. Thus at all times, grammar, punctuation, word usage, language, and description are marked. Spelling ALWAYS counts. As the year progresses you need to show a clear understanding of big Socials concepts (settlement patterns, economy and trade, and human rights), as well as crucial Language Arts aspects (thesis statements, paragraph structure, dress ups, essay format, language usage).

Humanities 8 Online is a project-based course that blends the knowledge of literature, language, history, and geography into a single learning experience that fulfills the requirements for English Language Arts and Social Studies 8. Students will develop the essential skills needed to explore their own interests and present knowledge in a variety of ways. As the course is student-directed and research-based, there is no textbook. Each module begins with skill development activities and essential background information before students are encouraged to select their own focus areas to present to the class.

Students are encouraged to stay connected with their teacher each week who will provide encouragement and descriptive feedback.

Major Units & Topics

We will explore European society from 800-1750 through a variety of videos, readings, discussions, tutorials, and research projects. Students will also complete a novel study and short stories unit. Through their studies, students will have opportunities for creativity, effective communication, critical thinking, as well as ongoing collaboration with each other and their teacher.

Assessment
Prerequisites

Familiarity with digital tools such as Word, PowerPoint, and Google are an asset and a functional webcam and microphone will be necessary for projects and virtual classes.

Time Commitment

A recommended schedule is provided, but as many students will work at their own pace, it is essential for parents to ensure their child dedicates at least 4-6 hours on the course per week and completes all tasks before June.

Welcome to Humanities 7-8 Blended! We are on an exciting adventure together, as we weave through Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, and World Exploration history, while improving all of our Language Arts skills. It will be a diverse year, including research, group work, oral and media presentations, mapping, videos to watch, and novels to read!

Because this class is a humanities class, Socials and English are woven together, sometimes seamlessly. Thus at all times, grammar, punctuation, word usage, language, and description are marked. Spelling ALWAYS counts. As the year progresses you need to show a clear understanding of big Socials concepts (settlement patterns, economy and trade, and human rights), as well as crucial Language Arts aspects (thesis statements, paragraph structure, dress ups, essay format, language usage).

Our year consists of three terms, each with an average of 9 classes. It will be a push to cover the entire curriculum, and thus there will be video/reading/writing homework assigned for weeks when we are not in class. If homework is done and completed when assigned and due, this will be a very successful year for you!

As well, this course runs in a FLIPPED classroom model. This means that much of your research will be done at home, through readings, short videos or podcasts, and your group work and assignments will be worked on in class.

We explore 1750-1919, with much of the course dedicated to the Confederation of Canada. While we focus on Social Studies themes, English elements are woven seamlessly throughout the course, allowing students to receive credit for both subjects. Students will explore information through a variety of formats including informational readings, videos, recorded tutorials, virtual classes, and independent research. Additionally, they will be encouraged to present their learning in unique ways such as written assignments, speeches, videos, and project presentations. Students should be comfortable using digital tools such as Word, PowerPoint, and completing independent online research, although they will be supported in the development of new skills.

While a recommended schedule is provided, it will be up to the student, with the support of their teacher and parents, to ensure successful completion of all course materials before the end of June. Additionally, it is expected all students will actively participate through forum post discussions, group projects, monthly virtual classes, and weekly contact with their teacher who will provide encouragement and guidance.

Psychology 12

This introductory psychology course examines principles, approaches, and perspectives that psychologists use in their studies to explain human behavior and mental processes. As students investigate key topics and review some case studies, they gain an understanding of themselves as well as other people. Some of the unit topics include neuroscience, sensation and perception, states of consciousness, learning and motivation, and personality and psychological disorders. And by exploring a topic of personal interest, students broaden their understanding of this discipline, sharpen their own perspective, and develop better critical thinking and research skills.

STEM 7 integrates the learning requirements for Science, Technology and Math into one course. The activities encompass a variety of online and hands-on tasks that are broken down into a weekly schedule within the course so students can easily follow along and ensure they are on track to finish by the end of the year.

This course uses a variety of Gizmos, worksheets, online resources, videos, and hands-on activities. There are two textbooks for the course that supplement learning for both math and science. A student should plan to spend at least three hours each week to gain the most learning from the activities in the course and remain on track to finish in June. Parents should plan to help their child manage their time, check that all tasks from each week have been completed and provide assistance for a concept that is proving harder to learn. The teacher will generally include parents in responses to student questions however students are expected to contact the course teacher independently as needed.
