English (STEM Focus): ENG4U

Semester 2

This course is intended to prepare students for the language needs in pursuing a post-secondary education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The curriculum expectations for this course are identical to those in the ENG 4U1 course, but they will be taught with the needs and interests of STEM students in mind. Important areas of focus in this course will be on developing tools and strategies to improve writing, fostering approaches to read and analyze texts – particularly non-fiction texts – effectively, and enhancing research skills to assist in developing and critiquing arguments.
