THINKING & LEARNING STRATEGIES
In light of B.C.'s revised curriculum, the use of student-centered teaching strategies explicitly foster the development of the core competencies. These strategies also help teachers scaffold learning in order to help students make their thinking visible.
The strategies compiled here have been sourced and adapted from many different sources and can be used with students of all ages with any academic content.
