The Learning Strategies courses provide students with time and support to achieve their best in their classes. Students will also practice and develop valuable learning skills. Beginning the 2021-22 school year, GLE courses are available at each grade level.

Learning Strategies – GLE1OI/2OI (Grades 9 and 10)

This course focuses on learning strategies to help students become more
independent learners. Students will learn how to develop and apply
literacy and numeracy skills, personal management skills, and
interpersonal and teamwork skills to improve their learning and
achievement in school, the workplace, and the community, while having
time to complete their course work with support. The course helps
students build confidence and motivation to pursue opportunities for
success in secondary school and beyond.

Learning Strategies – GLE3OI/4OI (Grades 11 and 12)

This course improves students’ learning and personal-management skills,
preparing them to make successful transitions to work, training, and/or
post secondary education destinations. Students will use literacy,
numeracy, and research skills and personal-management techniques to
maximize their learning and will have time to put these skills to use on
their course work. Students will also investigate trends and resources to
support their post secondary employment, training, and/or education
choices and develop a plan to help them meet their learning and career
