NEW Report: Locally Developed Gr 9 Classroom Study

In Spring 2017, members of our Critical Transitions CoP began a project in locally developed Grade 9 classrooms in partnership with Lakehead University and Lakehead Public Schools. In June 2017, in-depth semi-structured interviews of three teachers at the partner high school who had or were teaching the Grade 9 Locally Developed course were conducted. Throughout the project, a number of new classroom resources, lessons, and so on were designed, field tested and revised, and this work is on-going.

To learn about the project so far, check out their full report, “Revisioning the Three R’s from the Ground Up: Relationships, Resilience, and Resources.” A 1-page summary is also available here.
