Pacific Way Elementary Parent Survey - Intermediate Students
Our vision at Pacific Way - Through a partnership involving all members of our educational community we will strive to develop lifelong learners. We will guide and encourage each child to develop to their full potential and we will do so in a positive, accountable, cooperative, and kind environment.

As we plan for the future, we want to be sure that our learning priorities are in line with our vision. We have chosen the four priorities that are highlighted below to guide us in our planning. These priorities are in alignment with School District #73's Strategic Plan and the First Peoples Principles of Learning.

I have interviewed a number of our intermediate students on the topics below. Each video clip is less than two minutes long. We invite you to listen in on our students sharing their learning and then to take a few minutes to respond to the questions. Your responses and comments are important to us and will help guide us in the development of our school improvement plan.

Inquiry Based Learning
Effective Inquiry-based and and project-based learning strategies enable students to demonstrate personal awareness and responsibility to set goals, monitor progress, manage stress, persevere in difficult situations, and regulate emotions around issues that are connected to their community. Inquiry-based learning and Project-Based Learning are holistic, reflexive, reflective, experiential and relational.

Higher Order Thinking
Creative thinking involves the generation of new ideas and concepts that have value to the individual or others. Learning requires critical thinking and involves students considering and analyzing options, drawing conclusions, making judgements and exploring one’s identity. In order for our students to develop these and other competencies in the new BC curriculum, educators need to develop engaging, higher order tasks that require students to demonstrate them.

Making learning visible
Making student learning visible through creating things such as Presentations of Learning allow students to have voice and choice and to develop their skills of communication, critical thinking, and creative thinking. It promotes positive personal and cultural identity, social responsibility, and personal awareness through a variety of technology-based and non-technology-based modalities. Our learning is embedded in memory, history, and story, and it requires exploration of one’s identity.

Assessment of learning
Effective assessment of the competencies and the different ways in which students will demonstrate their learning informs the learner, informs our instruction, and allows us to truly discover what students know. Assessing learning involves patience and time.
