The name TechLAB stands for the three subjects that are covered by this hybrid program: ADST (Applied Design, Skills, and Technology), English Language Arts, and Bible. Put those together, and you get TechLAB.

Technology is the focus of TechLAB, with students learning about coding, robotics, electronics, and the engineering design process. While many students think that is awesome, what’s even better is that students will also complete English Language Arts and Christian Studies while creating hands-on projects, following technical instructions, making visual presentations, reading a science fiction novel, discussing digital ethics, and wrestling with local and global issues related to technology.

TechLAB 9 is the culmination of the TechLAB program. It is for students who have taken TechLAB in a previous year and want to dive deeper into coding, electronics, and the design process. In ADST, students will learn the basics of Python and will further develop their Arduino programming and electronics skills. In Christian Studies, students will study the second half of the Gospel of John or will watch and reflect upon Season 3 of The Chosen. English is woven through all of these activities. Additionally, students will read short stories and a novel. They will write a short story and three essays. There is a unit on New Media and another on Writing Skills.

What is really exciting about TechLAB 9 is the Capstone Project, which will bring together the design skills and outward-focused mindset that is integral to the TechLAB ethos. Students will come up with their own project which will meet a specific need and make the world a better place. In the Spring, this will become the primary focus of the program, culminating in the release of the project, student presentations, and a final celebration.

Prerequisites: Students must have completed either TechLAB 7/8 or TechLAB 8/9.

TechLAB 9 has limited enrolment capacity. Once the program is full, it will no longer be available in Encom. Please email the course instructor if you would like your student placed on the waitlist.

Asynchronous:
This is the traditional online model of “any time, any pace, any place.” The student works on the course independently. The teacher is available on Zoom to help with questions, troubleshoot coding problems, and develop writing skills. If your student would benefit from weekly meetings with their teacher and classmates, please enroll in the synchronous version of the course.

Time Commitment:
TechLAB meets the requirements for three subjects in one set of assignments and lessons. As a result, TechLAB requires a significant commitment of time and energy. Students should plan to work on TechLAB for 3-6 hours per week, for 30 weeks. Extra time may be required in the Spring when students are wrapping up their Capstone Projects.

Requirements

A computer, webcam, microphone and high-speed internet connection.

Novel:
  • The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba

Arduino Starter Kit or Tinkercad Account

  • Students can choose to purchase the Arduino Starter Kit (approximately $125) or use a free Tinkercad Arduino account. Students can use curriculum funds to purchase the physical Arduino Starter Kit.

Major Units and Topics

Technology Modules
  • Python
  • Arduino


Core Modules

These modules teach specific English and ADST competencies and delve into Biblical Attributes and worldview.

  • Storytelling
  • The Chosen: Season 3 or the second half of the Gospel of John
  • New Media
  • Writing Skills
  • Novel Study
  • Essay Writing

Assessment

Video submissions of projects and presentations in Flip.

Written paragraphs, reports, short answers, creative writing assignments, grammar quizzes, and essays.

Each step of the design process will be assessed by the teacher and the student’s self-assessment.

Final projects will be assessed by the teacher and student.

Proficiency-based rubrics are used throughout the course.

*Humanities 12 students who have already completed Career Life Connections (or in the process of completing it elsewhere) will get credit for Discipleship and Vocation 12 instead, a Christian Studies 12 (4 credit) option.

**Humanities 12 students have the opportunity to satisfy their required 4 credits of Indigenous-focused coursework to graduate by adding English First Peoples 12 in place of English Studies 12.

Humanities 12 is far more than just a 3 in 1 array of graduation mandated courses. As C.S. Lewis so poignantly states, “The promise of glory is the promise, almost incredible and only possible by the work of Christ, that some of us shall actually survive that examination, shall find approval, shall please God. To please God, to be a real ingredient in the divine happiness, to be loved by God, not merely pitied but delighted in as an artist delights in his work or a father in a son – it seems impossible, a weight or burden of glory which our thoughts can hardly sustain. But so it is.”

In Humanities 12 we are going to look at our intrinsic desire for glory revealed in our self-glorying tendencies and which are only fulfilled in a relationship with the God of glory who promises that one day we will complete our quest and be made glorious. World religions reveal this pursuit of glory. To see God’s glory is our greatest joy; self-glorification, our greatest vice.

Finally, Humanities 12 marries its biblical perspective of world religions and meaningful literature with practical career-oriented learning. If needed, the program satisfies the final four career education credits towards graduation, including the required Capstone project, through a robust focus on discipleship and vocation.

Requirements

Enthusiasm for robust biblical engagement with historical and literary themes.

Completion of assignments by uploading, printing, or scanning (either by taking pictures or printer scanning) finished work.

This course also requires attendance of LIVE lectures with the teaching team using ZOOM video conferencing.

Humanities 12 is best completed as a linear program starting in September but other special arrangements can be made if necessary after consultation with the Hum10 teaching team.

Major Units and Topics

Episode 1 On Religion
  • The Search for Glory
  • “Human history is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.” ~ CS Lewis

Episode 2 Ancient Polytheism
  • Glory Misplaced
  • How the Genesis account was written to counter ancient polytheism

Episode 3 Judaism
  • Glory and Goodness
  • Moses – “Show me your glory.” And God said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you.” Exodus 33:18

Episode 4 Greek Mythology
  • Heroic Glory

Episode 5 Islam
  • Glory in Justice

Episode 6: Buddism
  • Glory in Peace

Episode 7 Secularism/Atheism
  • A search for Happiness and Freedom in the glory of the self

Episode 8 Christianity
  • Glory and Happiness
  • Human flourishing is only found in the discovery that the glory of God and human happiness are not conflicting pursuits. Rather, they are compatible realities where the pursuit of the former results in the experience of the latter. As Jonathan Edwards says, “One is inferred in the other.”

Humanities 11 is far more than just a 3 in 1 array of graduation mandated courses. The program’s integrated approach blends the literary and cultural developments of the times with enduring biblical reference points. The eight episode modules follow world history from 1901 to the present.

On the tombstone of one of the most famous people of the 20th C there is only one word: Imagine. This is the word that the world has embraced, and the church has largely lost.

Janine Langan, professor of art history and the founder of the Christianity and Culture program at the University of Toronto, made this comment regarding her vision for her Christianity and Culture program: “My contention is that there is nothing more fundamental than the imagination, and that our loss of respect for it is directly linked to religious apathy.” In Humanities 11 we are going to explore the world through the lens of the imagination.

Finally, as a legacy program in its 3rd decade, Humanities 11 marries its biblical perspective of international history and meaningful literature with practical career-oriented learning.

Humanities 10 is much more than a 4-in-1 array of graduation mandated courses. Through an integrated, theme-based inquiry, students will reflect on literary and cultural developments at key moments in Canadian history (1914 to present) through a robust biblical frame of reference. Each of the eight modules contains two lectures, review/reflection activities, and a major investigation to help students formulate their own faith-based perspectives on pressing cultural topics and issues. As a legacy program in its 3rd decade, Humanities 10 is ultimately intent on recovering a biblical identity so students can enjoy fullest life in Christ and understand their biblical vocation as a redemptive voice in culture.

Overall, Humanities 10 marries its biblical perspective of Canadian history and meaningful literary inquiries with practical career-oriented learning. If needed, the program satisfies 4 of the 8 required Career Education credits towards graduation through a robust focus on discipleship and vocation.
