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.
The Math Pod is a collaborative open learning opportunity for all educators lead by three Ontario math leadership networks, the MLN, ML2N, and NWML2N.
Cycle 3 of The Math Pod occurred from April 4-25, 2018. During these 4 weeks of professional learning with Dr. Cathy Fosnot, participants moved from arithmetic to algebra. Check out the highlights from Cycle 3 in this NEW report by our Mathematics Leadership Community of Practice!
