The majority of our work was posted in D2L. Since it is private to members of our group, I wasn't sure how to share it. I took a screenshot that shows the posts within each discipline of Social Sciences and Humanities. We hope that the sharing on D2L continues and that number of posts grows in the…Continue

During the first few days of the course, students were given a copy of the overall and specific expectations. With that information, students were asked to brainstorm questions they had about different topics within the course. Teachers then took this information and used it to guide their unit planning, incorporating these questions into lessons and activities. This allowed student voice to be a part of the planning process, allowed students to have input into their own learning, and…Continue

"Developing Critical Thinking and Collaboration in the 21st Century Mathematics Classroom"
The journey was informative, eye opening,…

Assessments included anything from formal Social Science research process work to…Continue

We have come a long way. Students are on target for our project in math fact fluency. We have tried out many apps, but by far the best is REFLEX MATH! Students love it. Students started out, as a whole group, with 6% accuracy in their multiplication and division facts. They are now, as a class average, 71% fluent, with several students reaching 100% fact fluency. This program has been a huge hit and a huge success for student achievement. I love the way it targets individual needs and…Continue

So the school year is almost over. Our group has been busy that last couple months.
We have gone to visit an Outdoor classroom in a fellow Northern Ontario community, Thunder Bay. The team there has created an amazing outdoor learning environment that has inspired our TLLP group. We hope some day our School Board will allow us to create an outdoor space for our school as exciting and purposeful as the one we saw at the Confederation College Child and Family Care Centre.

So far, the program has been a great success!
Phase 1 of the proposal ran from September through March and involved teacher development and exercises to allow teachers to become…Continue

Today I was finally able to use a tool that I had been waiting to fit in at the right time. It is an app within desmos.com where students use the graphing calculator to draw an object using math equations. We have been talking about linear and quadratic relations for the last month so it fit in nicely.
Students went to student.desmos.com and entered a code unique to my class (no registration for student necessary and it is free). From there they went through a brief…Continue
