Intersections and Connections: South Central Catchment PD Day has ended
Location: Strathcona High School, 10450 - 72 Ave, Edmonton, AB

Consider car pooling! There’s ample parking in and around the high school. You can park in the school lot, by the pool, the rink, or on side streets. Please DO NOT park in areas which are clearly marked, "No Parking," which includes a few of the spots by the pool.  

How might today’s keynote and breakout sessions influence the way we approach student assessment?
To what extent does mental health contribute to learning challenges, and in what ways can we influence the learning and achievement of some of our most vulnerable learners through positive practice?

Catchment Learning Goals:

With a focus on Comprehensive School Health our keynote, breakout sessions and collaborative time, will:

  • Present information about what a Comprehensive School Health approach involves

  • Help you to develop perspectives and pathways to creating a Welcoming, Inclusive, Safe and Healthy foundation in your community, school, and classroom

  • Present evidence-based best practices for applying a Comprehensive School Health approach in your classroom practice

  • Provide you with the opportunity to consider, reflect upon and discuss links between CSH and best practices, assessment, student competencies, curriculum redesign, and the new Teaching and Leadership Quality Standard documents
