Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Curriculum Branch.
Designed for students who have experienced difficulty in learning, this combined curriculum guide and program of studies describes the Integrated Occupational Program (IOP) which is designed to develop the skills necessary for everyday living at home, at school, in the workplace, and in the community. The IOP Language Arts Grades 8 and 9 program is designed to provide for the development of the essential concepts, skills, and attitudes required for effective communication in all environments. The Language Arts 8 and 9 program has been developed to practice these skills by integrating skills across the curriculum and applying these skills to various real life situations. Goals for the program include having students: (1) become self-motivated and self-directed decision makers; (2) gain increased confidence in taking risks, accepting challenges and making decisions; and (3) develop a sense of self-worth and confidence in their ability to participate responsibly in a changing society.
