English Language Arts

English Language Arts at the 30 level is a graduation requirement for all high school students. 

At SGEC we offer all Dash 1 and Dash 2 English courses. 

Students can follow one of two course sequences (illustrated above).  Although the content of the courses is similar, the depth of concept development, the sophistication of textual analysis, and the complexity of text creation are more rigorous in the Dash 1 sequence.

Generally, the "dash 1" (-1) stream is for students who are university bound. The "dash 2" (-2) stream, while still academic, is suited for students who need more assistance in the subject matter. After completing the 10-2, 20-2 and 30-2 stream, a student can move to the 30-1 course in the subject.
