The RVS Living Local Cohort | Spring 2018
Exploring, celebrating and contributing to our local communities.
Teachers will design learning that will connect their curricula to their local communities, culminating in a Market Faire to celebrate and exhibit the products of their journey. Our community partners for this cohort are the Airdrie Farmers Market and Crossroads Market.

Design Cohorts are immersive, hands-on professional learning workshops that bring a group of teachers together to collaboratively design and implement a combined inquiry & project-based learning experience for their students.
Each design cohort features a community partner who provides authenticity and an outside-the-school connection to the learning. The PL days also offer built-in scaffolding for teachers to help them make the learning visible, as well as support with designing exhibitions to provide purpose and audience for the student learning.
A limited number of teacher spots will be available for each school, each requiring an administrator’s support.
