Our names are Anya and Max and we teach a grade 6/7 split class at Frontenac Public School every Tuesday afternoon. So far, we’ve covered topics such as bullying, substance use and abuse, self-confidence and goal setting. Coming up, we have lessons planned to discuss puberty, sexual health and healthy relationships! Our students love videos and playing Jeopardy which we’ve played a couple times to review our lessons. We have found the best method of teaching in our classroom involves open ended questions that lead to discussion and role playing situations. The students bring a lot of their personal experiences into our discussions which helps us to plan future lessons based on their interests and existing knowledge on certain topics. We love teaching at Frontenac Public School every week and look forward to a fun Outreach Day at the end of the year where we will be able to hang out with these awesome students outside of the classroom! A big thank you goes out to Nicola Dillard, the class’ teacher, who has been very helpful with lesson planning and opening up discussion in the classroom! Thank you so much for having us in your wonderful classroom!
