Career and Life Management 11 is a compulsory half-credit course. It is intended to help prepare maturing high school students for their future in a rapidly changing society. The course is developed around three units of study: Self-Management, Financial Management, and Career awareness.

 

The course focuses on growth in students’ self-knowledge and understanding; strategies for improving students’ personal well-being; the development, maintenance, and the enhancement of relationships; the realities of life/work; wise management of financial resources; and development of personal action plans leading to living independently and accomplishing personal goals.

 

Evaluation scheme:

 

French   15 %

 

Homework/Participation   10 %

 

Class Work   75 %

 

In order to vary the forms of evaluation, the Class Work mark will be the averaging out of multiple forms of evaluation put over a 75 % mark. The teacher will not categorize different types of evaluations (such as quizzes and tests) and give them a certain percentage. Rather, the evaluations’ worth will be relative to one another by the number of points attributed to them. For instance, a written reflection might be marked on 20 points whereas a major research paper might be marked on 120 points. This way, confusion will be avoided in terms of classifying less traditional forms of evaluations like dramatic representations and expressive collages.
