## CHILD DEVELOPMENT

with Carol Michaud

Children's behavior can be both fascinating and frustrating, especially when you don't understand it. This class will explore physical, emotional, social and intellectual development from conception through adolescence. We will see how child development theory applies to everyday life. Links will be made to parenting, family, community, and the workplace. You will learn that taking care of children is one of the most important responsibilities you can have. **DIPLOMA STUDENTS ONLY.** *Lab Fee of $15 due at registration.*

## COMPOSITION, LITERATURE, AND FILM

with Janice Foster

This class is designed to prepare students to develop higher critical thinking skills by studying thematic issues, reflected through literature and film. Students will read and write while they develop knowledge of different types of media. Furthermore, students will learn about the relationships between literature, composition, and film to gain an understanding of the complex interplay between film and literature. **DIPLOMA STUDENTS ONLY**. Lab Fee of $15 due at registration.

## EXPLORING RELATIONSHIPS

with Kathleen Paradis and Nancy Provost

This course focuses on the relationships between personal choices and individual well-being with an emphasis on teaching health ways to listen and communicate with family, peers, and others. Discussion will raise awareness about social issues and increase and increase knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of interpersonal relationships. **Diploma students only - $15 lab fee to be paid at time of registration.**

## FOUNDATIONS OF ALGEBRA

with Michael Emery

This course builds on the concepts learned in Foundations of Math and prepares learners for Number Skills for College. In this course we will investigate operations with fractions and decimals; ratios, proportions, and rate of change; probability and measures of central tendency; exponents and radicals; integers; irrational numbers; order of operations; and more complex geometric concepts. **DIPLOMA STUDENTS ONLY**. Lab Fee of $15 due at registration.

## FOUNDATIONS OF MATH

with Michael Emery

This class provides instruction in basic math computation. We will explore the place value system, the meaning of the four basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) and their application to whole numbers, as well as an introduction to fractions and decimals. This course will lay the foundation for future math courses. **DIPLOMA STUDENTS ONLY.** *Text fee: TBA*

## HISET MATH LAB

with Frank Huard

Based on pretest results, students will receive instruction in math in preparation for HiSET testing. One-on-one instruction will be provided when possible.
