This year Through a Different Lens is pleased to sponsor 5 different inquiry groups. Each group will be looking at authentic learning and how we can best support our students as we explore the renewed curriculum. We will continue with the themes of hands-on learning, community building, strength based teaching and learning, choice, and weaving in Indigenous perspectives and ways of knowing. We will also continue to look at teaching to the whole class while watching our students who feel less confident as learners - and we will be slowing down and learning from those students. It is going to be an exciting year as we work together to explore new ideas and ways of facilitating learning in our classrooms and district.
We are happy to have support from Dr. Leyton Schnellert (UBCO) and Shelley Moore as we learn from each other and from our students.
