My CBSL Experience Reflection!


My Digital Learning Narrative

I can't believe the semester is about to end but I am happy with the knowledge I have gained from this course. An exceeding amount of valuable information and resources has been shared with me by professors, guest speakers, articles, and peers. Before this course, I had not been exposed to the lies within common sensical... Continue Reading →

Pre-Internship Week: Visual Art and Good Byes

I can't believe it. My time with Ms. Hiebert and her grade 7 and 8's has come to an end. I have learned so much from them and I hope the students have learned as much from me. Today was a sad but fun day. I taught my first visual art lesson which was exciting... Continue Reading →

Pre-Internship Week 7: Social Studies and Visual Cues

My goal for this week was going back to the basics. While I still wanted to improve how well I keep students engaged and listening, I also wanted to improve my writing skills on the board.

Boy, was I not getting the full picture. For disabled students,... Continue Reading →

For my lesson, after discussing what self-esteem is and its importance, we signed our names on pieces of paper, crumpled the paper into a... Continue Reading →

Response to The Secret Path

3 Things I Learned: Hearing Chanie Wenjack's story through song fostered a sense of empathy within me that I have never experienced. The sentimental lyrics by Gord Downie and the beautiful yet eerie illustrations by Jeff Lemire create a heart-wrenching story that tells of Canada's darkest moments. Despite hearing countless stories similar to this, The Secret... Continue Reading →

Pre-Internship Day 5: English and Being Disciplinary

So... I decided to challenge myself a bit and have the students debate. Today's lesson was on what a debate is, the format and structure, as well as the skills needed. I used two short video clips to help students get a visual of the setup and created a workbook to help them with their research... Continue Reading →
