Toronto Catholic District School Board

Canadian and World Studies Department
 
Focusing on our students and their world.
 
 
 
 
 
The Canadian and World Studies Department helps students to become informed, responsible, and active global citizens. 
 
Our program weaves together History, Geography, Civics, Law, and the social studies disciplines of Anthropology, Psychology, and Sociology. These are subject areas that prepare students for life in a dynamic, ever-changing world.  
 
In these subjects practical and conceptual skills are developed, such as critical thinking and effective communication.
 
Learning to do research and learning to express oneself in speech, in writing, and in the new media are all part of a solid foundation for post-secondary studies and for managing our lives in the 21st century.
 
The Advanced Placement European History course focuses on European history from approximately 1450 to the present. As an AP course, it teaches students skills that are essential at a post secondary level. In this course, students investigate the content of European history for significant events, individuals, developments, and processes in four historical periods, making connections among historical developments in different times and places.
 
AP European History is offered concurrently with the regular Grade 12 European History course.  AP students are required to attend additional classes once a week for the entire school year to achieve the necessary mastery of the subject prior the AP Examination, held in May.
