Brainy Smurf Meets Brainy Teachers...
During PD Day Susan Wegner from BCHS shared some of her project work on Course Career Investigation.
Alberta Education has a workplace readiness course for K&E students, but no resources clearly outlined for the course. As a result, Susan decided to hunt for the resources that are at Alberta Education, but not really in one location. The first place she looked was the ALIS website and printed out all their publications related to employment. There are many resources there that are easy to read, perfect for our K&E learners.
Open up the document to find the resourses Susan has put together. It is also linked to our blog. Thanks for sharing Susan!
At Eleanor Hall School Raime Drake and Joanne Fedun are working with students identified as requiring reading support. Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) is the program they are using. This intervention program is similar to Early Reading Intervention (ERI)but implemented with a small group of students. They shared their learning of the program and how they are implementing it at their school during PD Day. Great targeted intervention!
If you have any questions just ask the ladies...click on the picture below for a brief overview of the program.
While at Jarvie School Principal, Martin Cairns, and one of the students there showed how they were accessing Tumblebooks from an ipod/ipad using the web browser called Puffin. A great way to access a great reading resource at various grade levels. Puffin is a free app. Thanks for sharing Marty!
