Using a Module Approach for Teaching and Learning

Home > Projects > Using a Module Approach for Teaching and Learning


Inspired by the Grades 10-12 English Language Arts curriculum proposal, SD 42 endeavours to pilot the module design as suggested in the draft.

For the module approach to work in a conventional high school environment, the students will be scheduled into a single section as a multi-age Grade 10-12 student grouping with three teachers. There will be nine modules in total, three of which will be core content and the remaining six will reflect the optional curriculum.

Teachers will choose areas of strength and passion to determine optional curriculum to develop. Students will select the modules to move into over the course of the year. Each module will be one term in length. Consideration will be given to students to complete a module in Independent Directed Studies (IDS) in areas of passion or interest. The students completing an IDS module will be supported in creating cross-curricular connections with their study.
