Combined Grades

We recently had the opportunity to plan and work together with the new revised Social Studies/History and Geography Curriculum document. One of the activities at the Ministry of Education roll-out was to plan for combined grade lessons. We are working with a grade 4/5 split and the new document allows for easy planning for combined grades.

Workshop Presentation 2013

Pete and I enjoyed sharing our work on inquiry-based teaching at a conference in Toronto. Click here to view the slideshow we shared with participants. We had over 80 participants but managed to make it a hands-on, and engaging workshop. It's fun to share our learning about teaching with the inquiry approach!
