Science Department Forensic Science 25 and 35 Forensic 25 - substantial changes made to the look of the course in recent months Changes are largely aesthetic (images etc.) Assessment and key changes are minor Forensics 25 remains ADLC's highest enrollment and highest completion rate course Forensic 35 (3 credit) will undergo the same evergreening as Forensic 25 course with the next print run. Forensics 35 (5 credit) launched in Sept YAY!!!

Chemistry 20, 30 & Science 20, 30
Fast Track Diagnostic tutorial tool that provides students with an alternative pathway (actually multiple pathways) to progress through an online course (a course within a course). How Fast Track Works: Course is divided into sections - units, modules, etc. Each section begins with a diagnostic test that tests every concept in the section If student succeeds at a certain test item, they skip the relevant lesson(s) that teach these concepts. If student performs poorly on a particular test item, immediate feedback is provided and is linked to the relevant lesson tutorial At conclusion of a tutorial, the student writes a quiz to demonstrate understanding before returning to the diagnostic tool at which time the student gets another opportunity at another question that tests the same concept the student got wrong previously.
Students Who will Benefit Most From Fast Track? All students because they are provided with individualized instruction during which their time is used most efficiently (on the concepts they find challenging). Students who took prerequisite course a long time ago. Students who performed poorly but passed the prerequisite course. Students who passed the course already but need to upgrade their mark. Students from other school jurisdictions or educational systems for which readiness for a course cannot be easily predicted. Tentative Fast Track Timeline: John Pachkowski (ADLC Chem teacher and creator of Fast Track) hopes to launch a pilot with Chem 20 students, possibly starting as early as this spring.
Physics Physics 30 print course currently being evergreened to make navigation easier and eliminate contradictory instructions. at conclusion, print and online assessments will be the same. unit review assessments are being added to both the print and online courses target release date - Sept Physics 20 will undergo equivalent evergreening next year. target release date = Sept
Science 10 Project In Sept. 2011, a partnership with R.F. Staples High School (Westlock) for a 21st Century Learning pilot will occur Staples’ approx. 70 students from several feeder schools in two sections of Sci. 10 will be in 1 class taught in a traditional way by one teacher, with a 2 nd teacher responsible for determining which students are deficient in certain skills or prerequisite knowledge. The 2 nd teacher will pull students from class when necessary, provide specialized tutorials and/or labs. After achieving success, students rejoin regular class. A complex system of randomly generated diagnostic, formative, and summative tests, are being devised with several versions of each that address the same concepts so small groups of students can complete tests when they are ready to do so without compromising the security of the tests. Students will be allowed to advance ahead of the class, finish before semester end, if appropriate, or may be allowed to complete the course more slowly after the end of the semester if required.
Second Languages Meeting the needs of the 21 st Century Learner Did you know that… globally, bilingualism or multilingualism is the norm?
Knowing Other Languages Brings Opportunities Greater opportunities for higher education Enhance ability to travel Enhance employment capacity – due to globalization Building and keeping cultural connections Greater grasp of one’s first language Increases cognitive skills – math, analytical thinking
