IDC3O Interdisciplinary Studies: Athletics – Grade 11 (Open)
GRADE: 11 (Open)
AVAILABILITY: Blyth Academy Online
THE ONTARIO CURRICULUM: Interdisciplinary Studies
CREDIT CROSSOVER: Although Interdisciplinary Studies courses focus on different subject matter, the IDC3O course code can only count as one credit on a student’s transcript, even if multiple IDC3O courses are taken. For example, a student that has completed IDC3O – Athletics and IDC3O – Data Literacy will only earn one credit in total on their final transcript. Each course (along with the final grade) will show, however, a credit value of zero will be applied to the second IDC3O course.
IDC3O online will provide students with an understanding of how to make connections among diverse subjects and disciplines. Students will leave the course with a deep understanding of research and inquiry as it applies to athletics in the past, present, and future. IDC3O online is meant to be highly applicable to the student’s current life as an athlete, and as such, contains assignments and projects that encourage them to apply the information in a personal and relevant context. Students will study athletics in terms of physiology, history, training strategies, and careers.
