The Grade Six Humanities Team (Chris Dittman & I) have created an inquiry project that will thrust students into the role of researchers as they delve deep into the hot topics around this year's municipal election. I have developed a website that elaborates on the various aspects of this project, but "Connect Engages" basically teams students together into expert groups and they learn about issues facing our city. Once they have learned about the issue, they will interact with the various candidates for the Ward 11 council seat. We are planning on having the candidates join our classes at the beginning of October.
