Streetfront Alternative 2011-12
Hello All, This is my first foray into the world of blogging. I teach at a unique Alternative School in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I figured it is time to allow others insight into what my classroom is like.
Quick overview of Streetfront: Based out of Britannia Secondary School; grades 8 to 10; co-ed; most students have been removed from traditional high schools; we offer a very unique – active based model – to engage our reluctant students; 60% is core academics and 40% is intense, physical activity; we go on 3 mandatory runs each week; many students train for half and full marathons; we will venture out on over 40 physical field trips over the school year. Staffing: 1 teacher, 1 youth and family worker, 1 alternative program worker (outdoor education leader); 22 students
