2. Why are we talking about co-teaching? Pourquoi le co-enseignement ?

Co-teaching is obviously not just about being two teachers in the classroom. Read the new inspiring article (in English and French) by Karen Taylor on why this specific educational pattern is a wonderful source of enrichment both for teachers and students. 

Vous étiez d’ailleurs nombreux le 26 août dernier à participer au passionnant séminaire sur le coenseignement donné par Ochan Kusuma-Powell et Kristen Pelletier. 


3. Ecolint Learning Principles / Les Principes d’apprentissage

If you are not yet familiar with the core component of an Ecolint education, read our Learning Principles Monograph published last year. Vous pouvez également choisir de lire la version française des Principes d’apprentissage.

If you want further to develop your daily practice in the classroom, register for our course Learning Principles: A Thinking Toolkit for Teachers. Les outils évoqués dans ce cours se fondent sur ces cinq éléments essentiels :

My teacher…

> Knows me (Culture, Structure, and Diversity)
> Checks what I already know and can do (Learning, Knowledge, and Understanding)
> Teaches in lots of different ways (Mind, Memory, and Meaning)
> Pauses to see if I understand (Fear, Failure, and Flourishing) 
> Gives me choices (Confidence, Courage, and Criticality)
