Engaging All Learners in the Middle Years – Year 1 – Webinar #1

Greater Victoria School District would like to invite educators in BC to join in a shared conversation about engaging all learners in the middle years. This three-part webinar series will be hosted by Dr. Leyton Schnellert with a guest appearance by Shelley Moore, and visual representation by Kristin Wiens.

Districts and schools are invited to gather a team of educators to live-stream the event together in local groups. Our goal is to facilitate meaningful, practical and local conversations while simultaneously furthering a Province-wide dialogue. Some of the footage may be archived for future use.

Part 1: Middle Years Philosophy and Practice

Part 2: Valuing young adolescents – being prepared
