Welcome : )
This website is meant to support the learning of ALL of my students in Social Studies 30-1 & 30-2
An Important Message from Andrea
Hello : ) Welcome to my Social Studies 30 Level classes. I teach both 30-1 and 30-2.
You might already be able to tell that I sort of do things differently. For instance, I am a really independent thinker and I like to give the space for my students to be independent thinkers as well. I like to figure out things for myself (part of being an independent thinker), and I think the MOST POWERFUL LEARNING occurs when we are allowed to figure things out for ourselves.
My goal for my students is to help you become strong, independent thinkers, learners, and doers... This is YOUR LEARNING! Consider me the "Guide on the Side". I am here to help you. I am the expert in curriculum interpretation and translation, and assessment of learning in measurement against provincial standards. I am here to help you achieve your learning goals and prepare you for the Social Studies 30-1 Diploma Exam.
Some Words to Think About:
"A good teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary."
Videos to Inspire Thought , Debate & Action
I got this video from TEDTalks, which has an amazing collection of videos from the top thinkers and doers in the world. I hope it serves as an example of the kinds of things I want to see my students posting on this website. This learning for this course is YOURS! So go forth and take control : )
Every Wednesday 1:30-2:30pm
