Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Curriculum Branch.
This guide was written primarily for students in Grade 9 who are planning their high school programs but it also contains information that may be useful to students already in high school. The guide begins with a "Building Your Future" section which serves as an introduction to high school and the planning process that goes along with it. The "Setting Your Goals" portion helps the student focus on his/her own personal abilities, interests and values. Goals are separated into short-term, such as earning a high school diploma, and long-term, such as studying at a post-secondary institution or getting a job or starting one's own business. The "Earning Your Diploma" section familiarizes the student with the credits and courses required for high school graduation. The "Selecting Your Courses" section explains about the required core courses such as English, Social Studies and Mathematics as well complementary courses such as Career and Technology Studies, Fine Arts, Language Arts and Second Languages. Extracurricular activities and Alternative programs are also discussed. Additional information provided includes Transcript of Achievement, scholarships, post-secondary information, financial help and career counselling. A planning chart for grades 9 through 12 is also provided. (BF)
