Description
Welcome to Miss. Casella's Classroom! This is intended to provide free math and literacy lessons, as well as, to have an ongoing conversation with like-minded people. Emphasis is placed on social emotional learning, mystery, creativity, and imagination. Strongly, as a public educator, I feel these elements help to evoke independent critical thinking skills, while opening a gateway to optimism. Personally, I love philosophical metacognitive conversations. Inside all of us, there is a child. Let that child play. Fully, I support play-based learning/inquiry-based learning at all levels of learning. In these environments, people thrive by having the opportunity to do their own thinking, reaching their own conclusions independently or in a group. Centers, give way to incorporate the multiple intelligences and differentiated learning. Is it farfetched to believe Big Foot exists? Do fairies really exist? Why you ask? Well...why not! Dinosaurs once ruled this planet.

Description
Two notes in two days from the bears! Being gay is just another kind of love. The bears inform us about the legalization of gay marriage in Ireland. Here in Canada too, people of the same gender can marry each other. The bears place emphasis on a number of points. Not everyone supports gay marriage, although, it was a majority rule. We always need to respect all views. How can we be all we can be when we're not allowed to be true to ourselves? The bears say, as long as you're not hurting yourself or others, you should be able to be true to yourself. If you can't be true to yourself, maybe you're not allowed to be or maybe you're too afraid for to be, to remember, that gay marriage didn't just happen overnight. It took a lot of courage, for people to stand up for something they believe in. What do you believe in? Will you take a stand? Taking the first step is the hardest.

Description
The Echo Project is about exploring an aspect of 20th century Canadian history through a generational lens. This is done by making a personal connection to the past through interviews and scouring intimate primary documents such as family journals, letters, and photographs as well as what students find with broader research. Students think critically about sources and patterns, develop historical empathy, and get creative with how they represent the past. While many students choose topics related to the World War II era, they may discover they have ties to stories and events before or after the war such as the Great Depression of the 1930s or the Postwar era of the 1950s and 60s.
