Course Description

ELA B30 is organized into two main units: The Search for Self : We develop our understanding of who we are, what it means to be human, and the purpose of our lives. The Social Experience: Every person is part of the larger society and is shaped by and responsible to it. Students examine, critique, and interrogate the society in which they live and consider the actions students can take to create the kind of society in which they would like to live.

Units of Study

Kindergarten English Languages Arts (ELA) is an study in Saskatchewan’s Core Curriculum. The aim of this course is to help learners understand and appreciate language. The learners in this course will require a Learning Mentor to help them navigate the lesson plans, instructional videos and course assessments. The lessons will include all areas of language: reading, writing, speaking, listening, representing and viewing. In addition, Kindergarten in Saskatchewan is highly play-based and individualized. We are flexible and through regular communication, we are willing to support families to fit the learner’s voice and choice. Note: All children learn at different rates and there is no expectation that a student will be reading by the end of Kindergarten. Assessments will include ongoing home assessment and some submissions/communication to DLC teacher. Submissions may include PDF documents, audio or video files, photos of projects.
