This professional development will walk a school through how to implement 21st Century Skills in their school from a SCHOOL and CLASSROOM level.
The group will work through the school implementation process and set a timeline for implementation, and then based on that timeline, the classroom teachers will plan their implementation.
Please note - the key to successful implementation is NOT time intensive - the key is introducing and then fully implementing the language and skills into your DAILY ROUTINES and classroom life. Once the skills are introduced it should become part of your day and not require set time - it will be part of everything you do!
Algebra teachers, Juliana Jones and Marlo Warburton, have common philosophies and expectations in their algebra classrooms but use their own unique teaching styles and structures to create consistent experiences for students. Collaboration is an important part of that process and allows teachers to provide common learning experiences in their classrooms despite different teaching styles and structures. This video takes a look at the warm-up, lesson, strategies for group work, classroom expectations and routines to discuss commonalities but also identify ways in which each teacher personalizes their classrooms based on their own teaching style and personality.
This webinar will give you a refresher on top notch lesson planning criteria that we all know to be effective…except with a twist! The twist is sharing tips and tricks for doing this in an online environment! The tips are tricks will include how to:
-engage online learners
-create navigational patters and repeated routines for our learners
-connect with our students and families
-provide timely and meaningful feedback
-deliver content clearly and effectively
-activate prior knowledge
-apply new knowledge to their personal lives
Most of all, we will share templates, strategies, online tools to help us all create fun and engaging learning experiences for us all!

This is a resource for adminstrators or PeBL mentors to help set goals with their staff for their school. Beginning with a look into the Continuum of Learning and moving into the idea of Collective Responsibility, staff will be given a chance to decide where they see their school and where they want to go next. This workshop works best in small, safe groups. The adminstrator or PeBL mentor will compile the results of the workshops and present to the staff to demonstrate common threads and related action items to work toward their goals for their school.
Agenda, PowerPoint, personal booklet, and group booklet are attached.
Welcome to the UnboundEd Mathematics Guide series! These guides are designed to explain what new, high standards for mathematics say about what students should learn in each grade, and what they mean for curriculum and instruction. This guide, the first for Kindergarten, includes three parts. The first part gives a tour of the standards for Counting & Cardinality using freely available online resources that you can use or adapt for your class. The second part shows how Counting & Cardinality relate to classification of objects in Kindergarten (K.MD.B). And the third part explains where Counting & Cardinality is situated in the progression of learning in Grades K-2. Throughout all of our guides, we include a large number of sample math problems. We strongly suggest tackling these problems yourself to help best understand the methods and strategies were covering, and the potential challenges your students might face.

Aboriginal children under age 14 make up 7% of all children in Canada and the Aboriginal population is the fastest growing demographic in this country. Eighty percent of Aboriginal children attend off-reserve provincial schools. In terms of school success, there are significant gaps in learning outcomes and graduation rates between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students.
This site provides many links to articles and resources that discuss this issue and provide examples of how different provinces are striving to close that gap and improve the educational opportunities to help Aboriginal students meets academic success.
