During this 75-minute webinar we will focus on the goals of de-streaming for the new curriculum to support student success for all - including Black, Indigenous and racialized students, students from low-income households, as well as students with disabilities and students with special education needs. We will review some of the changes required for the implementation of the new curriculum. Then, we will turn our minds to the advantages of destreaming within the new curriculum that create the conditions for the success of all students, including those who have been historically and systemically disadvantaged.
We will discuss leadership moves and the importance of your role as an instructional leader in order to facilitate shifting school culture and the pedagogy required for implementation of the new curriculum. Dr. Chris Suurtamm, lead researcher and advisor to the Ministry of Education, will join us to guide our collective reflection. Join colleagues as we talk about what, why and how to implement the new destreamed grade 9 math curriculum.
Please note: The initial presentation of this webinar will take place August 17th and it will be repeated on August 26th and September 21st.
