Grade 10 Course Selection www.dpcdsb.org/MARCL myBlueprint.ca
What to consider when deciding what to take in Grade 10 • Consider future goals when making choices for Gr. 10 • Some Gr. 10 courses will be pre-requisites for Grade 11 and 12 courses. Ex. You can’t take ASM3M1 in grade 11 if you don’t have the grade 10 ASM201. The gr. 10 ASM20 is the pre-requisite for ASM3M1. • Go onto your myblueprint account to check for pre-requisites and for course descriptions • You can also check out all the courses on your myBlueprint account, under High School
Making Your Choices – Compulsory Classes You will need to choose the following 6 Compulsory Courses for Gr. 10: English – ENG2P (applied), ENG2D (academic), ENG2L (Locally Developed) Math – MFM2P (applied), MPM2D (academic), MAT2L (Locally Developed) Science – SNC2P (applied), SNC2D (academic), SNC2L (Locally Developed) Religion – HRE201 Civics and Careers – civcar (CHV201/glc2o1) History– CHC2D (academic), CHC2P (applied), CHC2L (Locally Developed)
How do I do this? • Log into yourmyBlueprintaccount • Go to High School • Click on the course – the compulsory courses are shaded in • Select the level • Add to plan • Submit and print plan (you will need this to complete your registration)
Gr. 10 Elective Courses • You can choose 2 Elective Courses • However if you go to summer school this summer and take 1 compulsory course, ex. History, Civics and Careers, then you can choose 3 elective courses in your myBlueprint BUT HOW DO I DO THIS? • If you plan on taking summer school this summer, do NOT select the compulsory course you intend on taking. in its place put your third elective. Ex. Don’t pick CIVCAR and put in your 3rd elective choice. • Put your Compulsory course down in the Alternates box under your Gr. 10 column when choosing your courses
