Course Descriptions

Global Studies*

English I & World Geography

Prerequisites: None

Credit(s): 2

 

 

Global awareness and an awareness of how you fit into the world are the cornerstones of this course. You will be immersed in a study of current world issues, their origins, and possible solutions and will develop skills typically gained from world geography and English I as you encounter and solve problems with your peers. You will compare customs and traditions of different world cultures along with identifying nations’ locations and historic backgrounds. You will study and analyze literature related to the world cultures, and you will develop interpretive analysis skills through the readings. You will write narrative, descriptive, and expository compositions of varying lengths while utilizing the revision process, grammar, mechanics, word processing, and the research process.

 

BioLife

Biology & Health

Prerequisites: None

Credit(s): 2

 

 

BioLife is an integrated course in which students will gain in-depth content knowledge in both biology and health.  Biology content will include cellular biology and related processes, the molecular basis of heredity, an analysis of biological evolution, interdependence and organization of organisms, and human anatomy.  Health content will be addressed through focusing on personal and community health with topics such as developing healthy behaviors, understanding diseases and disease transmission, understanding mental, emotional, and social health, learning lifesaving techniques, and investigating current topics in health.  Projects in BioLife will develop conceptual understanding through the use of research, laboratory, and scientific inquiry skills.

 

Algebra I

Algebra I

Prerequisites: None

Credit(s): 2

 

 

Algebra expands the algorithmic skills of arithmetic to algebraic skills. It continues to develop the set of real numbers as a mathematical system, focusing on linear equations and inequalities, operations with polynomials, and solving problems. This course will emphasize the study of linear functions. You will use functions to represent, model, analyze, and interpret relationships in problem situations. You will develop an understanding of the connection between symbolic language and real world applications. It includes the study of function families and multiple representations of them, various solution strategies for systems of equations, operations with radicals, and graphing skills. You will also use a variety of representations (concrete, pictorial, numerical, symbolic, graphical, and verbal), tools, and technology (including, but not limited to, calculators with graphing capabilities, data collection devices, and computers) to model mathematical situations to solve meaningful problems.

 

IPEG

Integrating Principals of Engineering & Geometry

Prerequisites: Algebra I

Credit(s): 1.5

 

 

Projects within the Integrating Principals of Engineering and Geometry course will incorporate the study of geometric figures of zero, one, two, and three dimensions and the relationships among them. In this course, you will use spatial reasoning and geometric thinking to understand mathematical concepts and the relationships among them as you solve problems involving properties and relationships having to do with size, shape, location, direction, and orientation of these figures. This course will also expose students to design process, engineering standards, research and analysis, technical documentation, global and human impacts, communication methods, and teamwork.

 

Foreign Language

Spanish I

Prerequisites: Algebra I

Credit(s): 1

 

 

Spanish I concentrate on speaking and understanding simple non-technical sentences, and writing and reading with an emphasis on simple grammar patterns and topical vocabulary in the language. Basic cultural customs and differences will be introduced.

 

Audio & Visual Effects

Journey to Careers NT

Prerequisites: None

Credit(s): 1

 

 

This course introduces you to design principles, composition, imaging techniques, typography principles, animation and sound-creating and editing while exploring careers. You will have the opportunity to develop skills in illustration, image manipulation, screen design and animation. You will practice taking pictures with a digital camera, importing images from the internet as well as using a scanner for hand drawings, and you will develop competencies in the use and applications of industry-standard software by creating projects for print, presentation and Internet. The skills learned in this course will also prepare you to produce projects in all your courses along with introducing you to the vast world of career opportunities.

 

Political Studies*

English II & Civics/Free Enterprise

Prerequisites: English I

Credit(s): 2

 

 

Political Studies is a richly integrated course that combines Civics / Free Enterprise with Language Arts and focuses on the American system of participatory. Through a variety of literature, this project and problem-based curriculum provides students with an in-depth study of the principles on which the U.S. system of government was founded, the structure of the U.S. government and how it functions, the domestic and international roles of the U.S. government, and how the U.S. government compares to other forms of government. Students are also expected to analyze and evaluate U.S. domestic and foreign policies, various law and amendments, and the importance of participating in a constitutional democracy. Students use literary interpretation, analysis, comparisons, and evaluation to read and respond to representative works of historical or cultural significance.

 

Algebra II

Algebra II

Prerequisites: Algebra I

Credit(s): 1

 

 

This course involves the study of the complex number systems, graphs, relations, and functions. The ability to solve open sentences, both equations and inequalities is stressed. It will also include systems of equations and inequalities, polynomials, and rational expressions. This course introduces matrices and conic sections.

 

Physical Science

Physical Science

Prerequisites: None

Credit(s): 1

 

 

Physical Science serves as an introductory science to provide college bound students with a strong background in chemistry and physics before entering these courses at the advanced level. Topics considered include force and motion, energy and work, heat, machines, waves and sound, light, electricity, magnetism, behavior and classification of matter, atomic structure, and bonding. Emphasis is placed on scientific method, observation, lab experiences, and problem solving. This course uses audiovisual media, demonstrations, lab experiences and application of mathematical skills.

* These classes are designed so that both the English and History components are interconnected in the projects and are based upon the Grade Level Expectations established by the state of Louisiana. You will receive a grade for English and a grade for the history on your transcripts, but your gradebook will be for the class “Global Studies” and your two grades on your transcript will be the same.
