This course continues to support language development of all Grade 10 students. Students learn to understand, appreciate and use language in everyday life. They use personal experiences and other strategies to understand ideas that are presented in different ways such as legends, situation comedies and human interest stories. Students also learn to communicate their ideas in writing, dramatizations, websites, posters and other forms.
For further information, speak to your child’s teacher or refer to Senior 2 English Language Arts, Manitoba Curriculum Framework of Outcomes.
Assessment will take place throughout the entire course. Some of the ways that your child may be assessed are through writing (e.g. reports, short stories, or websites), designing and delivering oral and visual presentations, and responding in different ways to what is read, heard and viewed. Assessment in English Language Arts courses may include a final exam prepared by the teacher, the school or the school division. The final exam measures how your child communicates ideas and information and comprehends, responds to, and critically examines various types of materials.
In the Grade 10 English Language Arts course, the course materials are decided by the school, teachers and students. These materials may be different from one classroom to another.
