  36. Questions and Answers

Notes de l'éditeur

  1. Have audience envision their ideal graduate.
  2. There are numbers of credit hours attached to satisfying the International curriculum (240hr for HIGH levels; 150hr for STANDARD levels). There are 6 clusters that must be satisfied for the IBD (International Baccalaureate Diploma): [1] Language and Literature; [2] Language Acquisition (second language; most often French or Spanish); [3] Individuals and Societies (social sciences…the largest group); [4] Sciences [5] Mathematics [6] Arts *students MUST take 1 from Groups 1-5; then either 1 from Group 6 OR another from Groups 1-5…most often it’s Group 3—Social Sciences *for HIGHS, these are usually split between Grades 11-12; for STANDARDS, these are also often split between Grades 11-12, but they CAN be satisfied in either Grade 11 or 12 (from what I have seen, it’s split) There are 3 MILESTONES: [1] Theory of Knowledge (ToK course); akin to our IDC 4U Honours Thesis course through Secondary Gifted; there are teachers in our secondary schools currently running this program; [2] Extended Essay (this is often attached to HZT 4U and the final product—an extended essay or undergraduate dissertation-like paper relating to one of the Groups; global significance; examined through the lens of a discipline, perhaps) *What might be a great plan is to split the EE and ToK in Ontario courses over Grades 11-12 and satisfy the milestones…for instance, HZT 4U in semester 2 Grade 11, then IDC 4U in semester 1 Grade 12 (or vice-versa). [3] CAS (Creativity, Action, Service); this involves a range of activities that occur in conjunction with their studies; focus on engaging in the arts, seeking a healthy lifestyle, and service with the surrounding or broader community(ies).
  3. Speak about different pathways possible in the future. Currently planning a humanities pathway. Soon to offer a medical sciences pathway and engineering pathway. More students in program allows for more options for students.
  4. FINANCE & WEALTH MGMT: students who complete this program earn a degree from W & a diploma from Fanshawe, in addition to multiple certificates
