Canadian/world studies  

The Canadian and World Studies Department encompasses a variety of subjects: Geography, History, Law and Politics. In studying these subjects, students learn how people interact with and within their social and physical environments today, and how they did so in the past. Skills developed in the CWS courses include: graphing, reading comprehension, sequencing, presentations, discussions, identifying cause and effect relationships, analyzing sources, and predicting possible solutions to world events/problems. All in all, the goal of the CWS department is to encourages students to take ownership of the world around them; directing them to study past events that have been successful and detrimental to world development, as well as their environment, in order to make better sense of the needs of the future.  



Geography:

The Geography program at CHSS begins with the compulsory grade 9 credit in Canadian Geography, offered at 2 different levels of difficulty; academic and applied. There is also an excursion to Toronto attached to the course to provide students with a hands on opportunity to study urban geography. Physical Geography and Travel and Tourism courses are offered in alternate years at the grade 11 grade level.

History:

The History program at CHSS begins with the compulsory grade 10 credit in Canadian History, offered at 3 different levels of difficulty; academic, applied and locally developed. As well as the compulsory junior credit, CHSS also offers Ancient History and Modern World History at the grade 11  level and World History at the grade 12 level; for both university and college bound pathways.

Law:

The Law program at CHSS consists of 3 unique courses: Understanding Canadian Law at the grade 11 level, Understanding Canadian Law at the grade 11 Workplace level, and Canadian and International Law, a the grade 12 University level. Within these courses, students use critical thinking skills, inquiry, and communication skills to develop informed opinions on legal issues.

Civics:

Civics is a compulsory grade 10 open level course that introduces students to the way in which government works, and how to be an informed, purposeful and active citizen. Students learn about the elements of democracy in local, national and global contexts, about political reactions to social change, and about political decision-making processes in Canada.




All CWS courses offer various excursions to places such as Ottawa, Toronto, Kingston and local destinations. This is planned so that students have the chance to see things first hand and experience different environments. As well, guest speakers are brought in to share their knowledge on aspects related to first hand accounts of events and employment opportunities associated with CWS subjects.
