Creating a Positive Learning Environment

Every classroom in Ontario’s publicly-funded schools is made up of a variety of students; each with different needs, different learning styles, different levels of prior knowledge and different interests. Discover how you can engage all of these students in learning over the course of the year by visiting: http://www.teachinontario.ca/employment/En/4_positive_classrooms.html



Mental Health and High School Curriculum

School-aged youth are a vulnerable population. They are in a period their lives that is crucial in their mental health development. Canadian youth spend more time in school than anywhere else outside the home. Schools are often challenged to deal with youth mental health, but are seriously under equipped and inadequately supported to handle this responsibility.

The curriculum guide provides a complete set of educational tools to increase understanding of mental health and mental disorders among both students and teachers.  For more information or to purchase ($40), visit: http://teenmentalhealth.org/resources/entries/mental-health-and-high-school-curriculum

“The Doorman”: Check out what happened when Clarke Road SS student, Josh Yandt, started holding doors open for his school mates.   The best part about this story is that it carries a message we can all learn from. Kindness breeds kindness. If we all go out of our way to do something nice for someone else, even once a day, we can create a better community to be a part of. Rock on, Josh!  http://www.cbc.ca/player/News/TV+Shows/The+National/Only+in+Canada/ID/2319405101/
