Meaningful Learning

Demonstrates the ability to engage learners in a variety of ways to create curiosity, deepen critical thinking skills, foster creativity, make connections to the real world, share learning outside the classroom/school walls and meaningfully reflect on learning to improve skills.

Some examples of how I have demonstrated this throughout my career are:

  • Feedback
  • Reflections
  • Sharing work with the school, twitter and other schools
  • Use of the Inquiry Wheel
  • Answering “What’s the point?” questions
  • Student “Today I Learned…” tweets
  • “What stuck with me” exit slips
  • Chalk Talks
  • Exploration of student questions such as “What does it mean to be a citizen?”,  “how can we be safe online?”, “Why should people vote?”
  • Q-Focus
  • Visible thinking strategies
  • Creating a restaurant for French 7 to teach French 5
  • Current event exploration via student interest
  • Genius Hour/Passion Projects
  • Levelled Book clubs created with the students
  • Student Vote
  • This Week At School reflections from students
