I joined Cohort 21 because I was shoulder-tapped. This is my fourth year teaching Senior Kindergarten (SK) and I enjoy evolving or tweaking the program to better meet student interests and needs. I am interested in engaging with a framework to constructively think about my teaching practice.
I want to create more opportunities for meaningful cross-curricular projects/collaborations that increase writing, engage students, and meet them where they are at.
This goal relates to my school’s strategic priority of written curriculum development and planning. Using our long-range plans and scope and sequence more efficiently to help educators meet their goals in a holistic and engaging manner.
The Season 12 Strand that resonates with me is Pedagogy, Belonging, and Wellbeing because I would like to create an environment in which students can feel that they belong as their interests are represented and explored while we are also engaging in successful academic growth.
I tried an idea yesterday that integrated our drama centre theme with an Ontario Writing Assessment practice.
