FREE High School Learning during COVID-19 Closures (Ontario)

"During this time of school closure, teacher-facilitated online courses are being temporarily adapted to allow for independent study. You can begin when you like and work at your own pace. This site will continue to be updated as the Ministry works quickly to adapt courses."

Welcome to the Ontario Ministry of Education’s secondary course preview site (Grades 9 to 12). This site is designed to provide students and their parents/guardians with access to secondary courses to review, refresh and extend their learning. The courses provided here are not full online courses and are not being assessed for credit. They are offered to support independent learning without the normal facilitation of a teacher. You can begin browsing the selection of courses available from the list below. Additional courses will continue to be added, so please check back regularly.

Elementary School. Thanks vkizzle.

Resources range from preschool to grade 12 and include curricula from various provinces (though the focus is Ontario). Thanks OntEdTchr.

I would assume this is all inside the normal curriculum of what is taught? Not extra information to learn?

I don't see the contradiction...

Since most high schools cannot afford textbooks for each student, this is an improvement. Kids should have had these all along.

Unfortunately, there are virtually no grade 11 or 12 course notes; most are just grayed out.

These are just electronic textbooks meant for summer online classes supported by a teacher.

Our kids deserve better.

I've created a thread with resources which range from preschool to grade 12 and include curricula from various provinces (though the focus is Ontario).

academic-resources-during-school-closure-2362927/

@lallamalaughs perhaps you could add the link to that thread in your OP? I posted it to parents because I figured older students would already have access to more resources and Intermediate/Senior teachers will likely have an easier time connecting with their students.

Updated title to say Ontario. Its Ontario's curriculum, but anyone across the country can access it and the curriculum should be similar.

So this is ending soon I think.

Is there an easy way to download some of these textbooks as pdfs (where available) without individually downloading the chapters, which takes forever. I know downloading the entire site for offline reading using e.g. HTTransfer is not so straightforward depending on the type of authentication...just tried and it didn't work for me. I'm no computer whiz though.
