We have the answers to that question in the answers given to Polygon’s reader questions about this course: What is the academic integrity of this course?
How does it affect students?
What will be taught in the third-grade class?
What is required in the final semester of this program?
Why do the teachers think it’s so important to teach the course to high-school students?
Polygon asked the educators in the field of education at the University of Toronto about the curriculum.
They explained that it is an opportunity for students to “learn and apply knowledge” to their “future careers.”
The course is also designed to give teachers an opportunity to “build the skills that are required for success in the profession.”
The class also aims to give students “a clear and accurate understanding of the concepts and concepts that inform their education.”
The instructor at this course, the professor of academic English, explained that the course “works with students in their learning process to provide them with a broad foundation for their future academic career and future career as educators.”
What will the course contain?
The course will have five modules, three of which will be introductory, two of which are middle school-level, and one that focuses on college-level work.
The modules will be available online for high schoolers to complete at the end of the course.
Why is the course taught at the start of the school year?
That’s because this course is designed to “provide a framework for students in high school to gain access to a wider range of advanced knowledge and skills that will help them achieve their academic goals and help them prepare for a career in the education system.”
Is there a time limit?
Yes, the course is a six-month course, which means it has to be completed in the spring of a year.
But that’s a pretty good time frame for teaching it in the classroom.
The course does include a “workbook” that teachers can use to guide students in completing the coursework.
Is there any evidence to show that the courses are good for students?
The class has an “F” grade from the Ontario College of Teachers, which is the highest possible grade the college can give a course.
But the report also points out that students who take this course “are significantly more likely to graduate from high school with a B or higher than those who did not.”
How is the program funded?
The Ontario Ministry of Education has set aside $50,000 to cover the cost of the academic English course, and it has set up a scholarship fund for high-quality teachers who wish to pursue it in high schools.
The ministry has also provided the teachers with a $50 grant to help pay for the tuition fee.
Is this a free course?
Yes and no.
The school system and the Ministry of Educational Development are both funding the curriculum through a partnership that pays the teachers a set percentage of the tuition fees paid by students.
The teachers also receive some cash from the Ministry for their work.
This program is also part of a larger pilot program that the province has been running for about a year, which will run through the end.
