Designing Opportunities Learning Collaboratively


Collaboratively designed and taught lesson on Long Division (through dance).

As Friesen’s 2009 work around the Teaching Effectiveness Framework suggests, we improve our practice in the company of our peers. At Connect Charter, there has been built in time for collaboration and designing learning together. With my grade/subject-matter partner, we designed and planned learning together which really helped me to improve my ideas and thinking about creating purposeful and effective learning. On several occasions we also had the wonderful opportunity to teach together, which in addition to creating more support for learners, also affords the opportunity to provide teaching practice feedback.
