Enhancing Learning Grants

Enhancing Learning Grants are back by popular demand! These grants are intended to provide opportunities for a team of teachers to work together on a collaborative inquiry question. The question needs to focus on an element of the redesigned curriculum and how to improve student learning.

Schools are eligible to apply for two types of grants:

  1. Enhancing Learning Grants
  2. Modern Language Enhancing Learning Grants – These grants are intended to provide opportunities for a team of teachers to work together on an inquiry question with a focus on language acquisition (French Immersion, English Language Learners, Core French, Spanish, Japanese etc.)

Crafting an Enhancing Learning Grant? Consider the following question starters.

1. What happens when…?
