A CTF / CLIL PROJECT
We are a Middle school that provides the Regular English Program (grade 7 – 9), and he Spanish Bilingual program (grades 5 – 9). Er are aso pleased to house the National Sports Academy for students in grade 7, 8 and 9. Sports included in this program are hockey. soccer and flex sports. At the same tiem we are implementing inquiry – based learning activities in the classroom so critical thinking and inquiry projects are put in place to help students expand their thinking and develop lifelong learning skills.
Two years ago we started a new program of studies designed for grade 5 to 9: CTF. Career and Technology Foundations enables students to discover and explore their passions, interest, and skills so they can build the foundation to make career choices. On Fridays the grade group work together in an inquiry /CTF model where students have choices in their learning activities related to the integration of all core and complementary subjects.
That´s the presentation I did during the Calgary City Tecahers´Convention on February.
