The blog link above was an assignment for the TL Diploma course I took this last term. It details my rationale for doing IBL in my class and why teachers need to engage in doing this with their students. It shows my connections to the curriculum and what the research indicates on this topic. This is the background information I will base my workshop on. Please take a look at my blog. https://lagrandejam.blogspot.com/2018/07/i-hate-history-why-humanities-need-ibl.html
It would be in part interactive but mostly informative.
8-12 English and French Immersion teachers
My name is Julie Anne Mainville. I have been teaching for the Richmond School District since 1996. Currently, I am a French Immersion Sciences Humaines/Social Studies and Français langue teacher at McRoberts Secondary School. I have taught all grades from 8-12 in both French and Socials. My graduate work focused on second language acquisition and motivation in learning. In January 2018, I started the Teacher Librarian Diploma at UBC. In my school, I am head of the French Immersion department and ProD Chair. I have worked for the Ministry of Education in the past as marker and trial writer for XXth History 12 and as a consultant on the new Graduation Literacy Assessment Task Force representing French Immersion. Most of my personal professional development has focused on assessment, motivation, literacy, second language learning and social justice. (NB... I don't have a photo at this time... I could send one later should I be selected to do this workshop)
