The 30-Level (Grade 12) is focused on addressing and resolving issues. Students examine Canadian history to understand the influences on our contemporary rights, responsibilities, and views of citizenship. Students examine issues facing Canadians and the global community regarding citizenship, specifically the foundational beliefs of Canadians. Students also consider the role of cooperation in a competitive society. Throughout all these inquiries, students are asked to consider multiple perspectives especially those of Indigenous populations.

Grade 9 students research and study what constitutes a society. This year of study has students looking to the past to determine the impact of history on present day societal structuring. Students explore the historical societies of Macedonia, Rome, England, Spain, France, and Mongolia.
Through the study of earlier societies, students analyze the impacts of empire building, territorial expansion and colonialism on various indigenous populations. In their research, students compare the factors that shape worldviews including time, place, culture, language, religion, gender identity, socio-economic situations and education, and how these factors are expressed in daily life.

Grade 7 Resources

Grade 7 students are beginning to investigate and understand the various types of power and governance within their own country at the local, regional, provincial, national and global levels. As the understanding of the levels of power that govern Canada develop, students compare and contrast those structures and processes with countries operating within Pacific Rim and circumpolar regions that do not operate as democracies. This area of citizenship focuses on the student using critical thinking skills to better understand the relationship between geography, resources, culture and historical events.
