to design a program in your school, how would you do it? Where would you start? What would you focus on?
This is our opportunity at Charles Bloom Secondary (@bloomsecondary) this year. It is only November but were are in the midst of beginning our planning for our 2016-17 school year. Our school is a grade 7 – 12 secondary school and our enrollment numbers are having us look at new design of our grade 7 and grade 8 programs. Forced by numbers or learning opportunities for kids – I am sure the debate will be full of emotion as we progress thru the year.Our opportunity – develop a Junior Program (grade 7/8). It will be a multi-grade program and with the new BC curriculum upon us – should we even be using the term multi-grade program.
Our current position – meet as a team to set out our timeline and plan some visits to other places – get an idea of what other folks are doing and then create something that is unique to Bloom. I have been asked a few times in the past few weeks – what is the going to look like? My answer – “I don’t know” but I am looking forward to finding out what it will be.
Here we go . . .
