Another Round of CHOICES at Kent

A student learns how to build a canoe in CHOICES.

Teachers have chosen areas of their passion and/or areas in which they feel kids would love to learn.  Students have made their selections.  Another round of our highly successful CHOICES program has begun!

  1. Hi Chris,

    I love this idea…our son is in middle school here in Sooke and they offer a similar program called Exploratories and he loves it. What a great way for students to spend a couple of blocks, or an afternoon in your school’s case, engaging in what they enjoy…a great way to move the conversation forward, I think around the topic of personalized learning. Great work. This is something I would like to explore for my school in the future. May I e-mail you at a later date with some questions and ideas?

    Take Care,

    Sue Tonnesen
