I BELONG

The “I Belong” project is back for the third year! This school year, empower youth by connecting them to their community through creativity and self-expression.
The program offers six exciting options for students to explore.
Invite a teaching artist from ELAN Quebec into your classroom to empower your students to explore their identity and sense of belonging in Quebec society through:

Taking Action in your community

This is open to ALL English schools in Quebec.
Registration closes Oct. 7th, and this year we only have one round of registrations, so now is your chance!

Here is a video recap of what has been done in classrooms in the past.

REGISTER BEFORE OPTIONS FILL UP!

COMMUNITY SCHOOLS IN QUEBEC’S ENGLISH EDUCATION SECTOR

The community school approach, adopted by the more than 90 schools in the CLC network, is closely aligned with the Quebec Education Program as well as the Revitalization Plan For Educational Success:  Beyond the Pandemic (2021/22) .  [1] [2] Across this province, you can find schools that have partnered with local organizations “to promote the health well-being of students and staff – to increase opportunities to go outside, exercise and enjoy the outdoors – to ensure that students experience smooth transitions” at all levels. (Revitalization Plan).

LEARN’s Provincial Resource Team (PRT) supports the growing network of community schools in Quebec’s English education sector. Known as Community Learning Centres or CLCs, these are schools that engage in partnerships with community organizations and service providers to bring much-needed resources and programs to students, their families, and the greater English-speaking community.

The Reference framework for core professional competencies for teachers – 2021 talks about “the necessity to rethink the relationships between families and schools and between teachers and parents”.  A community school strategy recognizes that parents and caregivers play a critical role in their children’s social, emotional, physical, and academic development.

“Community schools, despite the important change they represent, remain schools, with the mandate of working firstly and primarily with school-aged children and youth. However, they have adopted an expanded vision of what schools need to do…the approach is really more about a school anchored in its community.” (Patricia Lamarre, 2022)

LEARN TUTORING

Fall Tutoring Starting In October

LEARN Tutoring is available to students from grade 2 to 11, in the English system across the province, at no charge. Tutors are qualified Quebec educators who provide feedback to schools and families after each session.

Registration opens on September 26. Tutoring resumes on October 11.

LEARN AND CHSSN COLLABORATION

Mental Health and Wellness 

LEARN’s Provincial Resource Team (PRT) collaborated with the Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN) to support schools to address mental health and wellness in the 2021-22 school year in two distinct ways.

1. CHSSN School Climate Project Report: 

LEARN’s Provincial Resource Team (PRT) received funding from the Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN) to implement projects/activities to be implemented in CLC schools that help promote positive mental health and contribute to improving the school climate for students (aged 6-14), staff and families.

VIEW THE SCHOOL CLIMATE REPORT

2. Youth Mental Health Innovation Lab:

LEARN and Percolab invites Secondary Schools and Adult Education Centres to participate in a Mental Health Innovation Lab to develop homegrown strategies to address mental health and wellness challenges using a Social and Emotional Learning framework (SEL). The Innovation Lab uses a design thinking approach.

There are three main stages in the dynamic and fun 3-hour event:

  1. Listening to students, school staff, and community partners through a storytelling tool
  2. Innovation Lab – What do the stories tell us? What are emerging needs and desires? Generating ideas and experimenting
  3. Coming up with ideas and testing them out with the school community

We are in the prototype phase, and invite 4 schools/adult education centres ready to work with youth (ages 15-29), school staff, and community partners to reserve a space for the 2022-23 school year.

Contact Ben at bloomer@learnquebec.ca for more information.

RETIREMENT CONGRATULATIONS

Peggy Drolet

It is with great excitement for our valued colleague that we announce that Peggy Drolet is retiring this June after (wait for it!) 20 years teaching online with LEARN.

Peggy’s impact as an online educator is far-reaching in this province, not only for her excellence in teaching (before teaching online she was also a classroom teacher, consultant, and school administrator with the Central Quebec School Board for many years) and for online innovation with the Virtual Campus (recognized internationally with the iNacol Innovative Online Practice Award in 2012), but for the effect she has had on all of her colleagues at LEARN, in our partner schools, and world-wide through her Twitter followers.

To work with Peggy is to truly feel that #YouMatter.

Messages from current and past students are rolling in to celebrate her retirement:

  • Things went from confusing to crystal clear super fast with Mrs. Drolet!
  • With Mrs. Drolet, I developed love and interest for math and also confidence in my work! And when I am in doubt, I sketch it out!
  • From the first meeting, I saw how she would be the nicest, most understanding, and compassionate teacher ever and throughout that year she proved to be exactly that.
  • My love for math increased after taking your class. I love the jokes you came up with to make learning fun and easier.
  • I remember being in awe constantly of how organized you were.

Thank you, Peggy! We will miss you. <3

CONGRATULATIONS JULIE

One of our best secrets is out: Julie Paré awarded Le prix Ghislaine-Coutu-Vaillancourt de l’AQEFLS

Member of the Association québécoise des enseignant.e.s de français langue seconde (AQEFLS) since 2005, Julie quickly evolved from being a teacher participant to a workshop leader, and eventually to becoming a key member of their larger thematic committee. In her various projects and endeavours with the AQEFLS, she has taken risks, left her comfort zone, and to shared and collaborated with colleagues at all levels and from different milieus and organizations.  And thirteen years ago she brought her energy and experience to LEARN’s Ped Team, as our FLS consultant. Many of Julie’s projects at LEARN have greatly promoted the teaching of French as a second language in Quebec, projects such as Des missions en FLS, le Jeu de simulation globale, Compétence interculturelle, Ludopédagogie, Accent Quebec, Passeport de prise de risques linguistiques, many of our French How-to’s, and of course le projet Interagir (conversation réfléchie).
