                        SCHOOL SUPPLEMENT TO “CHOICES”
                                       GRADE 10
                          2011 - 2012 COURSE SELECTIONS

Parents and Students:

Choosing your courses needs to involve a great deal of thought and consideration as it may affect
your future plans. To help you with the process of selecting your courses, you will be given
“Choices", a document that outlines information that will assist you with the course selection
process. The information in “Choices” is also available at www.tdsb.on.ca. Your parents and
teachers will also be asked to make recommendations and you may, of course, speak to any
Guidance Counsellor for advice.

Not all courses described in “Choices" are available at Woburn and there are a few available at
Woburn that are not described in “Choices". Thus, this supplement will assist you in making
wise, appropriate choices for September 2011.

Please note that throughout the supplement, where an asterisk (*) accompanies a course code,
there is a description of that course in this supplement.
     a “6” designation in a course code as the sixth character, is for Gifted programs only;
         descriptions are contained in a separate Gifted Course booklet
     an “8” designation in a course code is for English as a Second Language/English
         Literacy Development

Our Student Services Department has counsellors who will assist you in your planning of
educational and career goals. Please do not hesitate to consult with them. Have your
questions ready for them when they visit classrooms in the next few weeks.

Please take care to make informed decisions that will guarantee school success in 2011- 2012



Parents and students should note that some courses have fees attached to them to offset costs
specific to the special nature of these courses. These fees are determined by the Department
Heads in consultation with the Administration and are reviewed annually.

The Administration will determine the time frame for the collection of these fees with the intent
to stagger their collection throughout the year. Should the payment of such fees pose a financial
hardship, students should speak with their teacher privately or to a guidance counsellor. Options
to a single payment might include payments in instalments or payment at another time or student
assistance in lieu of a fee or another suitable arrangement.

TDJ2O1           In this course, students apply a design process to produce a product following a SPICE
Technological    model. (Situation, Problem, Investigation, Construct and Evaluate) During Term 1,
Design           students will focus on Robotics with the introduction of VEX robotics. Students are
                 expected to produce a robot to meet a variety of challenges while researching design
                 models, building prototypes and incorporating strategies. During term 2, students will
                 focus on F1 in schools. Here students will once again follow the SPICE model while
                 producing a CO² propelled scaled race car. Students will test prototypes using a variety
                 of software and build models using computer numerical controlled equipment. Students
                 will also become familiar with CAD and CAM software, as they are encouraged to
                 produce products using a 3-D printer. (30%Theory/70%Practical)
TTJ2O1           Our grade 10 course emphasizes auto service. The course begins with a thorough
