The ACE Communications course emphasizes reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Learners are asked to demonstrate their ability to evaluate the information, ideas, issues, and styles evident in a variety of informational texts, media works and literary pieces. Learners use different sources to gather information, select appropriate forms of writing and choose from a range of organizational structures in producing unified and effective written work. Learners will also process and use oral communication effectively, assess a variety of media works and create a culminating research report. This course meets the grade 12 English requirement for most Ontario college certificate and diploma programs (not degree programs). Colleges may require additional testing or qualifications in English proficiency. Note that it is the responsibility of the student to research and verify college program admission requirements.
