Idea: Investigate ways to effectively transition ELL students into NIS.

Purpose/Scope: Investigate ways to effectively transition ELL students into NIS. Consider the use of home language and sharing of personal information including family background in addition to educational background with the student’s teacher(s) before they arrive for their first day of school.

  • To get to know the student as person
  • Know, value and utilize their home language

SENIA Student Award nomination

As you may know Sean Wright (Grade 9) has been nominated for the Senia Student Award for his presentations last year to the community members about his learning disabilities. He is meeting the criteria in particular for self-advocacy and promoting the awareness of special needs in the community.

As I am collecting resources for the nominating, I’d like to get some feedback from you who were participates last year of how you felt and what has been changed after hearing him advocate for himself.

Please let me know if you are willing to take the part of it and I will contact you with more details.
