Planning 10

 


Introduction:

The goal of Planning 10 is to enable students to develop the skills they need to become self-directed individuals who set goals, make thoughtful decisions, and take responsibility for pursuing their goals throughout life. Activities help students plan for successful learning in the Graduation Program, explore a wide range of post-secondary education and career options, think critically about health issues and decisions, develop financial literacy skills related to pursuing their education and career goals, and begin planning for their transition beyond secondary school. The course has a number of booklets and students are expected to master the content in the booklets. Learners will also encounter other resources and links to content of which the learner should become familiar. All assignments are turned in by uploading computer files to the course or completing online assessments.

 

On the main Planning 10 course page the learner will find, on the right hand side, small check boxes next to task titles.  As tasks are completed checks will appear in the boxes to indicate activity completion.
 

Course Layout:

There are 5 units in Planning 10, each containing various assignments and quizes.  The course culminates with a Final Presentation.
