Note: All complementary courses at RTHS will be offered based on student interest, enrolment and school resources.

Creative Writing and Publishing 15/25/35 (1269/2269/3269) – 5 credits each

Through participating in the actual publication process, students will use relevant technologies to create their own texts and follow those texts through the editing, publishing and marketing processes. In liaising with professional writing organizations, submitting to established publications and creating their own publication, students comprehend and manage the processes and conventions of publishing and marketing creative writing. Because the general outcomes of the course span Grades 10 through 12, Creative Writing and Publishing can be offered as a blended course when
enrolment is insufficient to offer separate classes at each grade level. Within the specific outcomes, there is an increasing sophistication in the understanding of concepts and application of strategies and skills. Prerequisite for CW 25: CW 15. Prerequisite for CW 35: CW 25.

Forensic Science 25/35 (2569/3569) – 5 credits each

These concepts may include the collection and analysis of evidence from crime scenes and the principles of fingerprinting, breathalyzers, polygraphing, DNA analysis, and more. A major component is the analysis of real crime cases, such as the O.J. Simpson case, the Atlanta Child Murders, and the tragic death of Princess Diana. The final assessment will involve a mock crime scene where students use the techniques they have learned to solve the crime. Prerequisite: Science 14 or 10

Psychology 30 (3171) - 5 credits
