The grade 8 class has been enjoying a multi-step project! We have finished part 1 of the project: planning a city using various inspirations such as Mythical, Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, or Futuristic-Sustainable. There were 5 groups, and the groups were required to create a 2D sketch and a 3D model (using Minecraft Edu). They presented a proposal to the "investors" (aka their Visual Arts teacher, English teacher, Educational Assistant, Vice Principal/Principal, and a Master's student from the Queen's University City Planning Program). Part 2 is underway. They will be using scale factor (grade 8 Math curriculum) to calculate the size of their city and then begin to build a paper city.

We will share all of the people we've met and the places we've visited to help us along the way and will show our audiences the tools and strategies we used and perfected to help us throughout our first-ever authoring experience.

We will be sharing a progression of collaborations with Craig Cardiff and Youth Ottawa, starting with songwriting with Craig, then my class interviewing Craig’s co-op student to create a talk show, culminating in a collaborative project of science videos we wrote and recorded that Craig’s students animated. We will highlight experiential learning and collaboration between elementary and secondary panels, as well as the value of connecting to folks outside the school walls to create richer and more authentic opportunities for students.
