School Story in Action 2023-2024 

 

April 19, 2024 

We would like to continue to share our collaborative work in our Library Learning Commons (LLC). Division 11 has focused on the First People’s principle that learning requires the exploration of one's identity.  

As part of our school story and part of the JEDI inquiry grant, we have a focus on identifying personal strengths and abilities. Our goal is to encourage students to identify and acknowledge their strengths and abilities, and to activate students’ voices.  

Students had the opportunity to think about and to say who they are to the world around them. Students selected one word, creating an image and then a symbol to represent one part of their identity. Using the Spiral of Inquiry framework, students returned to their Identity Maps multiple times to reflect on, add or change their words. 

 This links to our School Story focus in the following way:   

Learning requires exploration of one‘s identity.
