WKTEP’s Elementary teacher candidates spent the day snowshoeing on the Nancy Greene Summit near Rossland yesterday. As part of their elementary science and social studies class, the group explored ways to create rich learning experiences with students in winter’s outdoor classroom.
A group of nine teacher candidates from UBC’s West Kootenay Teacher Education Program braved the long drive to attend the Faculty of Education’s annual Job Fair on Friday, January 22. Despite recent winter weather, the roads to Vancouver were quite manageable as the group drove down on the day before so they could get an early start at the event. They were able to make connections with a wide range of school districts in B.C. and Western Canada, as well as with a number of international organizations.
