Women and Girls in the Developing World

World Issues (CGW4U).
For this assignment, students brainstorm what they feel are the most serious world issues. From there, students choose a world issue they want to learn more about. They do some preliminary research and conference with me to ensure their topic is well focused. After that, I just continued to work with students in making sense of the content and reducing it into a presentation while clearly articulating the depth/complexity of their issue.

Student Voice – Engagement, Learning, and Motivation

This video was created recently by students in grades 9 and 10 in HWDSB. They were asked a series of questions relating to their experience at school: What is a specific time you had fun learning and what made it fun for you?; How do you learn best?; What motivates you and interests you bests when learning? These are there voices.
