As a follow-up to my post on February 10th announcing the Designs 2015 series, I wanted to acknowledge the Designs 2015 team who created Re-Designs: Transforming the Curriculum and co-constructed this year’s Curriculum Implementation Day on January 9th. The Designs 2015 team is comprised of Secondary and Elementary educators from each Family of Schools. Team members led the Designs sessions and presented practical classroom strategies and best practices. Participants appreciated the opportunity to discuss and plan, and work in cross-school grade teams.
Thank you to the following Designs 2015 team members for their hard work and leadership:
Sean Soper, Julie Bertrand, Susan Johnston, Kammi Clark, Megan Wheatley, Judy (Dee) Chen, Louise Owen, Cheryl Ham, Ian Powell, Paul Shtenko, Veronique Darwin, Roland Schulz, Paul Clarke, Caren Hall, Jeeniece Chand, Cary Hungle, Carla Orr, Kathleen Barter, Glenda Robertson and Joanne Robertson.
This group also took part in this year’s Coast Metro series featuring Ron Ritchhard. Ron’s work Making Thinking Visible was a central theme of Re-Designs and aligns with District initiatives.
Designs 2015 wrapped up on February 24th and was very well-received with over 175 registrants.
