Havergal's Uncalendar, 2019-20 Academic Year

TGJ3M – Communications Technology, Grade 11, University/College Preparation The Art and Science of Filmmaking “Good design is in the details…the best thing that young filmmakers should do is to get hold of a camera and some film and make a movie of any kind at all.” —Stanley Kubrick The primary focus of this course is on narrative film production. You will explore the language of moving images, including sound production, through analysis of classic films drawn from key historical and contemporary sources. As you develop your understanding of film language, you will apply this language to produce your own films. In the year, students produce approximately five films of increasing complexity, culminating in a final extended project. In addition, you will learn project management, the stages of film and television production, principles of design and composition, scriptwriting, film acting, managing equipment, creating special effects and compositing, poster design, sound engineering and more. You will sharpen your analytical and aesthetic skills as you evaluate the effectiveness of the media you watch, including your own and your peers’ projects. Finally, we will investigate the multitude of creative and technical career opportunities available in the film and television industries. Program content: • Unit 1 – Principles and Processes in Design • Unit 2 – The Grammar of Film • Unit 3 – Understanding Film • Unit 4 – Communicating with Film • Unit 5 – Issues and Careers in Film and Television Production Note: the units listed above will be woven together throughout the year. For example, you will explore issues and careers throughout the course and will weave audio and visual components into several projects.

GRADE 12 ICS4U – Computer Science, Grade 12, University Preparation 1 CREDIT

In the Grade 11 Computer Science course, you learned how to program using a structured language and learn how to solve problems using a computer program as a problem- solving aid. The focus of this course is to help you to further develop your knowledge and skills in programming using an object-oriented language. Object-oriented programming is different from structured programming. Most conventional software is written from scratch, one line at a time, with very little reuse of procedures from other programs. In object- oriented programming, classes that are created are building blocks that model real-world entities rather than performing specific tasks. This makes them easy to reuse. As more and more classes are created, programmers may spend as little as 20% of their time creating new ones, and the rest of the time assembling proven components into new systems. You will learn how to access and use these classes to develop your own software. This Computer Science course will prepare you for an increasingly technological world. A foundation in this discipline, you will be introduced to the excitement and opportunities afforded by this field, and the course will begin to prepare you for careers in information technology. Program content: • Unit 1 – Designing and Implementing Data Structures • Unit 2 – Designing Modular Programs • Unit 3 – Topics in Computer Science • Unit 4 – Applying Project-Management Software- Development Skills Prerequisite: Computer and Information Science, Grade 11, University Preparation, ICS3U
