Our GSSD Philosophy: Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design
Good Spirit School Division believes in "Learning Without Limits" and "Achievement For All". To reach this end, teachers employ responsive teaching strategies with a belief that each and every student can learn and succeed. These strategies support students to become self-directed learners who look at any given situation as an opportunity to learn and who problem-solve to achieve their goals. Central to "Learning Without Limits" and "Achievement For All" is differentiation. Differentiation is a philosophy of teaching and learning that puts the needs of individual students at the center of all instructional opportunities.
This robust professional development plan is being implemented as a direct result of the GSSD Strategic Plan. The PD plan represents a cohesive "big picture" look at how all of the initiatives and work that we are doing for students ties in to complement one another. This is a direct link with our strategic goals of improving student learning, enhancing student well-being, strengthening instruction, enhancing levels of qualified staff and strengthening staff engagement and morale.
