Grade 10 ERC

Grade 10 Ethics & Religious Culture Supplemental Course

In this program, ethics essentially consists in critically reflecting on the meaning of conduct and on the values and norms that the members of a given society or group adopt in order to guide or regulate their conduct.
Indispensable for making judicious choices, this ethical reflection enables the development of a person’s moral sense. In addition to expressing the individual’s autonomy and capacity for exercising critical judgment, these choices are likely to contribute to peaceful coexistence. In this program, we will take into account the challenges related to community life in our pluralist society and elsewhere in the world.
The reflection will focus on such subjects as relations between human beings, freedom, responsibility, friendship
and mutual assistance, but also on questions that concern us as members of a society in constant flux, such as the
role of the media, the protection of the environment or the possible impact that scientific and technological advances can have on
community life.

Instruction in religious culture promotes an understanding of the main components of religions that is built on the
exploration of the socio-cultural contexts in which they take root and continue to develop. Sacred texts, beliefs, teachings, rituals, ceremonies, rules of conduct, places of worship, works of art, practices, institutions, and types of organization are
some of the aspects on which it focuses. Knowledge of these aspects will enable students to grasp, according to their age, the experiential, historical, doctrinal, moral, ritualistic, literary, artistic, social and political dimensions of religion. This program takes a special look at Québec’s religious heritage.
The historical and cultural importance of Catholicism and Protestantism is especially highlighted. However, attention is also given to the influence of Judaism and Native spirituality on this heritage, as well as other religions that today contribute to Québec culture and inspire different ways of thinking, being and acting.

While this is an independent study, students will be required to attend periodic sessions

with peers and the instructor.

This integrated project will address all ERC competencies: 

Reflects on Ethical Questions

Demonstrates an Understanding of the Phenomenon of Religion

Engages in Dialogue

Students will also be required to present their projects to the instructor by the end of November 2021..

A schedule of appointments will be created at a later date.

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.

A motivational quote has the power to awaken happiness and to brighten your day. It is a good idea to read a few in the morning, after waking up, and again, before your leave for work. Often, the words you read stay with you and affect how you think, act and react, for a long time after reading them.

A good quote can be the heart of a compelling article. Good quotes help to tell a story and enhance the credibility of a press release, news story or speech. Words that are crafted well can leave a lasting impact on the world.

Another reason we love inspirational quotes is that they affirm what we already know (or think we know) about ourselves.
