                                                        See the chart on page 3 for the OSSD requirements

 COURSE SELECTION TIPS

 If you are going into Grade 9
 •   For most pathways, you will need English, Math, Science,
     French, Geography, Phys. Ed., plus two optional courses.
 •   Carefully consider your grade 8 teacher(s) recommendations
     on pathway selection for each compulsory subject. Discuss
     these with your parents/guardians when completing your
     course planning sheet.
 •   Select the pathway that will best fit your educational needs
     and abilities. Set yourself up to be successful and challenged to
     reach your potential.
 •   Think about your optional courses and select courses which
     appeal to your personal interests. Grade 9 optional courses are
     the starting point for similar courses at other grades.

 If you are going into Grade 10
 •   For most pathways, you will need English, Math, Science,
     History, Careers/Civics & Citizenship, plus three optional
     courses.
 •   Think about your learning in grade 9. Take a good look at your
     marks, attendance and work habits. Select the pathway for
     grade 10 based on your past performance and future goals.
 •   You have more choice this year—put careful thought into
     your optional courses. You may want to continue in an area of
     interest from grade 9 or try something new.
 •   The compulsory half credit course in Career Studies (GLC2O) in
     grade 10 will provide you with opportunities to plan for your
     future.

                                                                                                            [5]
If you are going into Grade 11:
•     For most pathways, you will need English and Math. The
      remaining courses are based on your individual needs and
      plans.
•     Assess your marks, work habits, attendance, and overall
      learning in grades 9 and 10. As you move into your senior years
      of high school, you want to be on the pathway that best fits
      your needs and goals.
•     Start thinking about post-secondary plans if you haven’t
      already done so. Research apprenticeship, college, and
      university entry requirements to ensure you take appropriate
      courses to prepare for grade 12. Many grade 12 courses have
      prerequisites (courses which must be taken before being
      eligible). Use of the resources listed on the next page.
•     You have the most choices this year! Once you’ve planned for
      your post-secondary requirements, choose courses that are of
      personal interest and/or related to your career plans.

If you are going into Grade 12:
•     For most pathways, English is the only remaining requirement.
      Other courses depend on your individual needs for meeting
      graduation requirements and for gaining entry to your post-
      secondary program of interest.
•     This year takes serious planning! You need to research your
      post-secondary plans and select the courses which will prepare
      you for those post-secondary destinations. Do NOT assume
      you can easily make changes next year. Select the proper
      courses now to avoid trying to change into a course later only
      to find out it is already full. Use of the resources listed on the
      next page.
•     All students entering grade 12 should make sure that Ontario
      Secondary School Diploma requirements are being met in
      order to graduate.

 RESOURCES FOR ‘BACKWARDS PLANNING’
As Sean Covey says in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens,
you should “begin with the end in mind” when making plans. This
enables you to make informed choices as you determine course
selections each year.

All Students
Students on all pathways may consider an apprenticeship and may
find the following websites helpful:
•   www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/tcu/
•   www.apprenticesearch.com
•   www.oyap.com
•   www.ontariocolleges.ca
•   www.apprenticetrades.ca
•   www.tradeability.ca
•   www.ontario.ca/yourfuture

CO-OP
Cooperative Education can be a key part of your secondary school
plan. Speak to a Co-op Teacher about potential placements related
to your area of interest. Additional information regarding the
Cooperative Education Program, the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship
Program (OYAP), and Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSM) in
Construction, Transportation and the Arts are included in the
Specialized Programs section of this Calendar and on the Weldon
website at iew.tldsb.on.ca.

                                                                    [7]
College
Students on the college pathway should explore www.ontario
colleges.ca. Under ‘Programs’ search by keyword and hit the
‘visit’ button which links to the individual college website.
Check admission requirements carefully in order to ensure that
appropriate course selections are made during your grade 11 and
12 years. Pay particular attention to any Math, English and Science
requirements that are mentioned by the colleges. Many students
find that a Cooperative Education experience in secondary school
helps them in making informed choices for college plans.

University
Students on the university pathway are reminded that six 4U/4M
courses (including ENG4U) are required for university programs.
More specific information regarding prerequisite courses and other
entry requirements for particular programs at Ontario universities
is available through www.ontariouniversitiesinfo.ca. Choose
your grade 11 and 12 courses carefully based on the admission
requirements for programs of interest. Watch for other courses
that, though not required, are ‘recommended’ or that are related to
your post-secondary goals. Because the grade 12 year can be full
meeting the 4U/M requirements, students on this pathway who
wish to take Cooperative Education at secondary school should
consider it in grade 11.

Workplace
Students on the workplace pathway may explore both college
and apprenticeship opportunities for which they have the required
courses—check English and Math prerequisites carefully. Students
moving directly to the workplace will gain valuable experience
through the grade 12 Cooperative Education placement.
Workplace course curriculum is designed to prepare students
for the workplace and active citizenship. See your Guidance
Counsellor and/or the Head of Special Education for additional
resources suited to your individual needs.
