INTERPERSONAL AND FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS 11: HUMAN CONNECTION AND GUIDED EMOTIONAL LEARNING (MIAFR11)
Prerequisite: in Grade 10, 11, or 12
In this course students will undertake a journey of self exploration. Much of what will be learned will be directed by the students. As our world is constantly changing, so are we; therefore students will work together to explore as many ideas and topics that will help them to get to know themselves better. Students will explore and research different sources (media, books, podcasts, blogs, guest speakers, etc.) to help them better understand who they are and their place in the world. Students will also explore the impact on self by community and culture. Students will gain the tools and technologies to influence healthy communication with themselves, romantic partners, family, and new and current friendships. Students will also learn how to develop self-love, build leadership skills, cultivate self-awareness and confidence, satisfy their curiosity, and become more open and vulnerable.
