These documents have been developed to support teachers as they plan for and implement remote learning in NLPS
When planning for instruction, the well-being of the students needs to be our priority. After we have considered the well-being of our learner we also need to ensure that what we are asking our students to do is meaningful, reasonable and inclusive.
Use the documents below to help guide you in your planning:
In addition to the three curricular Core Competencies – Communication, Thinking, and Personal and Social – the Physical and Health Education (PHE) curriculum focuses on well-being and the connections between physical, intellectual, mental, and social health. Social and emotional learning (SEL) approaches also support positive environments, provide techniques to promote well-being and positive mental health, and support students who may have increased needs.
Teachers should consider how to build in behavioural competencies central to SEL: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making.
