Designed for Kindergarten to Grade 5 literacy teachers and school leaders, this deep dive will join those dots! Participants will experience a range of inquiry-learning, agency-rich techniques which they can apply to actual and virtual teaching contexts across the curriculum. The course aims to be jargon-free and include practical tips and video examples drawing from an IB PYP context. But is applicable to progressive-effective schools generally not just PYP schools! This is not an opportunity to ‘drink the cool aid’: critical thinking and healthy skepticism are encouraged!
