All Access: This Revolution is Definitely Televised
  • 2022
  • Leadership
J. Christine Greenberg, Primary And Middle School Principal

Rigour must reflect all the results that matter for high school graduates today. The results that matter in the 21st century go beyond traditional metrics because today’s graduates need to be critical thinkers, problem-solvers, and effective communicators who are proficient in both core subjects and new, 21st-century content and skills. These skills include learning and thinking skills, information- and communications-technology-literacy skills, and life skills. These are skills that are in demand and will have an enormous impact on their future prospects.

One of the main objectives of virtual classrooms is to create an online platform that invigorates engagement while maintaining the many functions of a traditional classroom, without having students and teachers physically present in the same place.

As Science As It Gets

Agnes Lee and Rashmi Shroff, Middle School science teachers

We often think of science in terms of complex names, properties and equations, hours spent in laboratories conducting boring experiments and then painstakingly memorising for exams. Must it be this way though?

Jen Crickenberger, Curriculum And Instruction Coach

At THS, we value learning as a community, and from each other. Kids Teaching Kids day is a perennial favourite amongst our students, but did you know that our teachers teach, share and learn from each other too? Many students were tickled that their teachers became students for a day during our most recent Professional Development Day on March 18.

Tolerating Imperfection (Part 1)
  • 2022
  • Leadership
Dan Blurton, Managing Director

The seminal psychologist Lev Vygotsky believed that people learn from doing and social interaction. Part of that process of learning and getting good at something is learning from one’s mistakes. But when people are taught to always aim for 100 per cent at tests, mistakes then become reasons for stress and anxiety. In some cases, this emotional response greatly impedes learning.

  • Teachers
Emma Mason, Grade 3 Teacher & Social Studies Coordinator

To drive student interest and motivation in learning history, THS has adopted a board game approach to teaching and learning where students acquire knowledge through role-play and simulation where they actively participate in complex decision-making and strategic thinking.
