SOCIAL 10-1 / 10-2

Students will explore multiple perspectives on the origins of globalization and the local, national and
international impacts of globalization on lands, cultures, economies, human rights and quality of life.
Students will examine the relationships among globalization, citizenship and identity to enhance skills for
citizenship in a globalizing world. The infusion of multiple perspectives will allow students to examine the
effects of globalization on peoples in Canada and throughout the world, including the impact on Aboriginal
and Francophone communities.

Globalization, the process by which the world's citizens are becoming increasingly connected and
interdependent, demands that students explore responsibilities associated with local and global citizenship
and formulate individual responses to emergent issues related to globalization. Recognizing and
appreciating the influence of globalization will lead students to develop individual and collective responses
to emergent issues.

This course offers students invites students to deepen their relationship with Jesus through a prayerful study of scripture.  Students will explore the Jewish historical, religious and cultural world into which the Messiah was born and the Old Testament covenant fulfilled.  The course explores Jesus' birth, life, ministry, death and resurrection and their central significance for the Church's understanding  of Jesus Christ as the Son of God.


Students will explore the complexities of nationalism in Canadian and international contexts. They will study the origins of nationalism and the influence of nationalism on regional, international and global relations. The infusion of multiple perspectives will allow students to develop understandings of nationalism
and how nationalism contributes to the citizenship and identities of peoples in Canada.

While nationalism has historically examined the relationship of the citizen to the state, contemporary
understandings of nationalism include evolving individual, collective, national and state realities. Exploring
the complexities of nationalism will contribute to an understanding and appreciation of the interrelationships
among nation, nationalism, internationalism, globalization, and citizenship and identity. Developing
understandings of the various points of view associated with nationalism as well as an appreciation for the
perspectives of others will encourage students to develop personal and civic responses to emergent issues
related to nationalism.
