Description
This guide is meant to support professional leaning among educators but may also be useful to parents or other adults who interact with children. It is designed to be used in self-directed inquiry groups but can also be used for personal study. It builds capacity for using engaged philosophical inquiry in drug education but the concepts and skills apply to education generally. The material in this guide is arranged as an 8-session inquiry, but you can adapt it to fit your own needs. The theory and practice readings have been carefully selected to provide an accessible introduction to the material and stimulate the application of the ideas into practice. They familiarize you with foundational ideas and theories of philosophical inquiry and how they can be applied to different learning environments. They discuss different philosophical content (e.g., questions) and philosophical methods to help you with facilitation. They are meant to stimulate thinking not provide all the answers.

The material in this guide is arranged as an 8-session inquiry, but you can adapt it to fit your own availability and needs. Each session includes: • a theory reading and a practice reading • a short introduction to the material • discussion questions that emerge out of the readings • activities to work on individually, with colleagues or in the classroom • suggestions for reflection and recording thoughts in your journal The theory and practice readings have been carefully selected to provide an accessible introduction to the material and stimulate the application of the ideas into practice. They familiarize you with foundational ideas and theories of philosophical inquiry and how they can be applied to different learning environments. They discuss different philosophical content (e.g., questions) and philosophical methods (e.g., analytic, phenomenological and hermeneutic) to help you with facilitation.

This document contains tips and tricks for teaching the newly proposed Environmental Science coursework that will be implemented with the BC Draft Curriculum in the near future. My goal was to provide teaching strategies, assessment suggestions, field trip opportunities, and classroom ideas that are student led learning opportunities. In this document, you will NOT find worksheets or seat work. My hope was to provide invigorating ideas involving Environmental Science that will spark debate and critical thinking in your classroom. This document may be used or adapted for any science class. This was done as a Teach BC Assignment for my education coursework with the UNBC Education Program. I hope you enjoy it!

The Every Teacher Project is a national study of Canadian educators’ perceptions and experiences of LGBTQ-inclusive education, designed to identify and make widely available the collective expertise of teachers and educational workers on inclusive education practices for sexual and gender minority students. The Every Teacher Project attracted tremendous support from project partner The Manitoba Teachers’ Society and from every national, provincial and territorial teacher organization in the publicly funded school systems of Canada. With their help in recruiting, researchers completed the project with 3,400 survey participants and an additional 24 focus groups, far exceeding our initial goals and making this the largest study of its kind in the world to date.

Description
I followed a student outside and captured an ordinary moment. I reflected on what I saw. I talked to another teacher for their thoughts. I talked to the parent of the student for their thoughts. I connected his learning with the curriculum and thought about what I would do in the classroom to further his learning and the learning of others. A pedagogical narration is the process and framework I used to make learning visible.

Use a pedagogical narration to make learning and thinking more visible for students, teachers, and parents.

Description
Engineering is a broad field that presents many opportunities for creative problem solving and hands-on learning. The engineering design cycle is a framework for thinking that can be broadly applied across all subjects and connects well to the new Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies curriculum. In this activity, students act as engineers and participate in a hands-on STEM lesson related to space science, while utilizing the engineering design cycle. Students will build a “Mars Lander” and test our their designs!

Description
The National Inventory of School District Interventions in Support of LGBTQ Student Wellbeing was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of school-system interventions in reducing stigma and improving resilience of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and Two-Spirit, and queer and questioning (LGBTQ) students. It was conducted as part of the larger research program led by Dr. Elizabeth Saewyc at SARAVYC, UBC. The goal of this study was to identify which interventions have been implemented across Canada through an online survey of school district Superintendents/Directors, and what benefits were associated with the various interventions. The survey covered a range of possible interventions in support of LGBTQ students: LGBTQ-inclusive policy, generic and LGBTQ-specific harassment procedures, course content, GSAs, generic and LGBTQ-themed events, professional development, and teaching resources.

Description
This guide is meant to support professional leaning among educators but may be useful to parents or other adults who interact with children. It is designed to be used in self-directed inquiry groups but can also be used for personal study. It is about the concept of resilience, and it helps build the capacity to nurture students’ (and others’) ability to adapt to adversity. The readings have been carefully selected to provide an accessible introduction to the material and stimulate the application of the ideas into practice. The suggested discussion questions and activities are designed to help you engage with the material. You are encouraged to pursue other questions that might present themselves or experiment with other activities. The important thing is to engage with the ideas through an intentional process of inquiry. The material is arranged as a 4-session inquiry, but you can adapt it to fit your own availability and needs.

Description
For over two decades, the Sanofi Biogenius Canada (SBC) program has nurtured young minds by challenging high school students to carry out groundbreaking research projects in the field of biotechnology. Grade 9-12 students apply in the fall to participate in the SBC program. Those selected for the SBC competition are matched with local mentors, giving students hands-on research experience in a professional lab setting. Participants compile their results and present their findings at regional competitions, vying for cash prizes and the chance to advance to the National and International Biogenius competitions. In past years, participant research projects ranged from cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, to agriculture and the environment. Many have since been patented and commercialized, garnering international media attention and igniting a true culture of innovation in Canada.

Description
Sky, Water, Earth is a collection of free, online, self-paced experiences that takes the form of a career preparation initiative for youths interested in the field of science. This is a year-long joint initiative between UBC Faculty of Education, the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, and the HR MacMillan Space Centre that runs from September 2017 to September 2018. The project guides youths to participate in learning playlists that help them build competencies outlined by the National Research Council Canada (NRC), some of which overlap with the BC Curriculum Core Competencies. Learners choose playlists they want to work on, each highlighting one or more of the NRC competencies for excellence in research - such as creative thinking, communication, teamwork, and more. Students complete competency-based activities through playlists, and earn points which can be redeemed for a variety of unique Real-World Opportunities curated to build success in their future careers.
