Humanities 10

Course Overview

Humanities 10 is a unique program that integrates three courses of study; Humanities 10 - Bible, Humanities 10 - English, and Humanities 10 - Social Studies. However, Humanities 10 is far more than just a 3 in 1 course credit arrangement. Although students receive full credit for three important graduation program courses, the integrated approach, which Humanities 10 employs, blends the literary and cultural developments of the times with enduring biblical reference points. The five modules which make up Humanities 10 therefore follow Canadian history from 1812 to 1914 and are best understood as a testimony to the promise and failure of 'Empire' orientation - that is, the propensity of natural man to enlarge, expand, ascend, or otherwise prove one's personhood in moral and cultural space.

Humanities 10 is not bounded by these dates. While journeying through war, rebellion, nation-building, and ethnic strife, it is hoped that students will engage an innovative framework that first considers the late modern basis for social order, and thereafter work through learning interventions that compel them to recover their 'voice' in view of 19th century developments that remain formative on human thought and practice today. The possibilities are limitless with this multi-faceted and multi-genre program.
