Welcome back to school and classes! We hope this week has been a great start to getting to know more about your classroom students and school community.
We’ve recently added Resources section to our website. Here you’ll find links to key tools you and your colleagues can use for planning your inquiry. If you have new teachers in your school this year, particularly those beginning educators, these resources are a great place to start in connecting them to the inquiry process. Did you know that Spirals of inquiry: for equity and quality is considered required reading for many teacher candidates at universities across BC? So new teachers may already have some experience with the inquiry process!
The First People’s Principles of Learning, developed by British Columbia’s First Nations Education Steering Committee, is a great resource to bring to share with staff at a meeting early in the school year. These guiding principles can help to shape the pathways of learning for both staff and students throughout the school year.
We’ll soon add an Articles section to the Resources page on the website. We encourage you to share your suggestions for what should populate this space. Please contact us with your ideas!
