LEARNING COMMONS
AM – time to collaborate and work on LC webpage
PM – Literature Sharing (books for reluctant readers, favorite Canadian books, graphic novels, etc.) We ended the day with many unanswered questions such as: is there a current listing of approved Indigenous Canadian Subject Headings, resources that have the word “Indian” do we keep or weed, explored Edmonton Public Schools Literacy Resources (EPSB Reviews: The First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Collection is maintained by the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education team, Edmonton Public Schools. This annotated bibliography represents the diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit cultures across Canada and some areas of the United States. Titles are reviewed through an education lens as wells as by a member of the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit community.)


Exploring First Nations materials across the curriculum for RVS Learning Commons colleagues in 2019 might be beneficial workshop for all.
A PowerPoint of shared resources was emailed out to all Learning Commons.

Equine Facilitated Learning & Wellness C of P

As a group we were introduced to what equine facilitated learning and wellness is and what it has to offer for individuals as well as groups. Our hosts, Angie (http://www.equineenrichment.com) and Amy (http://heardwellness.ca) of Rafter U7 Ranch and Wellness Centre (both approved service providers with RVS) led us through experiential activities each day that led to valuable conversation about how we could could implement this form of experiential learning within our school communities.

As a continuation of the healthy cooking initiative, we cooked lunch with an Asian flair. We started the day with a discussion of the sodium and sugar content of various foods. We then went into the kitchen to prepare Wonton soup, Vietnamese Chicken Banh Mi, and Summer Salad rolls. Yum, Yum!!!!! After filling our faces, we analyzed the sodium and sugar content of our delicious lunch. We ended the day by discussing our plans for next year.
