BIO4-0001Biology 40S
More Information

This course provides students with the opportunity to acquire a body of knowledge in the areas of ecology, biodiversity, and genetics. In addition, this course will develop skills such as laboratory, communication, critical thinking, problem solving, and study skills.

CHE4-0023Chemistry 40S
More Information

The pre-requisite for this course is Chemistry 30S. Chemistry 40S is a study of matter and its properties, as well as application of all these chemical phenomena in our daily life. WHMIS, Aqueous Reactions, Atomic Structure, Kinetics, Chemical Equilibrium, Acid-Base Equilibrium and Electrochemistry will be taught at this level of Chemistry. In this course we will be following the curriculum set out for Chemistry 40S by Manitoba Education.

 

CWH4-0001Cinema as a Witness to Modern History 40S
More Information

This course will engage students in an exploration of the connections among cinema as an art form, cinemas as a product of history, and cinema as an interpreter of history. Students will respond to and discuss the aesthetic and emotional elements of cinema and will apply historical thinking concepts to the analysis of historical themes as represented in various films and other sources. Throughout the course, students will apply critical media literacy skills in order to understand that film does not simply reflect the past, but interprets and retells the past and, at times, reconstructs it. Throughout the course, students will engage in guided viewing, write film critiques that show evidence of historical thinking and critical media literacy, and conduct historical research to evaluate and reflect on representations of history in film.

ENT4-0005English 40S Transactional Focus
More Information

This course focuses on writing for practical purposes: persuasive and expository writing, research skills, analysis of writing style, basics of technical writing, as well as the study of media and literature.

Prerequisites:
GIS4-0001Global Issues: Citizenship & Sustainability 40S
More Information

Students research and discuss relevant social, political, environmental, and economic issues as they affect Canada and the world at large.  Through their inquiry, students will ask questions and discuss what actions can be taken in light of their research.

The course is “topic” driven – 1st Nations concerns, water & pollution, non-renewable energy sources vs. sustainable energy practices, illiteracy and poverty will be discussed.  Students will be involved in selecting other topics as the course progresses and they will assume responsibility for sharing their findings with the class.

The key aspect of the course will be participation – students must be active rather than passive.  There will be no textbook required as most of the data will be taken from the Internet.
