Canada in the Contemporary World 10F (CCW10F)
This course is designed to help young people understand, meet challenges, and think critically in and about Canada. Canadian Studies will focus on the physical geography, some regional challenges, and our multicultural character in Canada. French-English relations may also surface as a component of the course. The government, as well as the legal and economic systems will provide further direction for this course. One key goal in Canadian Studies is to promote tolerance, understanding, and acceptance of the many cultures represented in the Canadian mosaic.
- Regions and Identity – What is Canada? How are we unique from other countries in both physical geography and the people who inhabit our land?
- Canada's Government – What does our government look like? How does it operate? What rights and responsibilities do we have as Canadians?
- Diversity & Social Justice – What are the belief systems of Canadians, and what are our national stances on a variety of social issues? What separates us from our neighbours and allies? How does our justice system work?
- Canada in the Global Context – What role does Canada play on the world stage? How have we contributed to the global community? What major world events has Canada helped shape?
