TARGET AUDIENCE: GR 7-9 HUMANITIES TEACHERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.
Our Grades 7-9 Building Bridges educator group, from across Alberta, met five times over the course of this school year to discuss hot topics they were wondering about or grappling with. This connection and collaboration resulted in participants taking away strategies and approaches, ready to use the next day. We have decided to connect one final time before this school year ends AND we would like you to join us!
