Title:
U of L Curriculum Lab: What Sources Do We Recommend?
Topic:
There are too many quality teaching resources and not enough time to explore them all! Enjoy some time to interact with print and digital sources relevant to your teaching context.
Summary:
The session will start with our new search tool for easily locating books, videos and kits. Featured items: professional support in all subjects and Fountas and Pinnell Leveled Literature Intervention kits. Next, we will explore our new guides at www.uleth.ca/education/curr, which identify resources most useful for each subject/grade. Sources include cross-curricular literature lists, LearnAlberta Resources, Specific databases in LearnAlbertaís Online Reference Centre, new platform on Ninjaplans lesson sharing site, Education for Reconciliation supports, streaming video and more. Participants can then choose to either seek specific instruction in one or more sources, or to explore sources independently. Participants can bring a device (such as a laptop) or can borrow one of the Curriculum Lab Laptops. At the conclusion of the session, participants will identify how at least one source can add to their current teaching practice. Note: U of L Almuni are eligible for a free Library membership. Non-Alumni can purchase a Community card to borrow Curriculum Lab items ($30). To activate any membership bring a U of L ID card (former student card or get a new card at Campus IT, TH 218).
