Much curiosity, apprehension, and frankly fear, have surrounded the first couple of months of the school year for millions of parents around the world. With what seems to be chaos in too many areas of life today, it has been challenging to know how to best prepare for and provide the peace, clarity and calm needed for quality engagement within our community of students, staff and teachers.
This fall, LaSalle College Vancouver (LCV) High School successfully launched their in-class sessions with a series of exercises that enable care-free exploration of ideas and risk-taking. Too often, the fear of failure and ridicule pervades and thwarts the learning experience in the classroom. Using technology, science and engineering as a foundation, students – guided by their dedicated teachers – found themselves able to engage in both simple and complex orientation challenges with joy and success.
Since students have returned to campus this fall, LCV High School has been able to deliver high-quality teaching and learning, while adhering to physical distancing and other public health requirements. The small-class format makes it easy to follow these guidelines and creates a safe environment for everyone in the classroom.
