Welcome to the Blog for Room 217 at Dovercourt Public School. In 2010, back in Room 52, at Alexander Muir/Gladstone Avenue PS, the idea for developing a blog took place. It is a place to begin lessons, open up discussions, and display the learning taking place.
So, why I may never find myself in Room 52 again, it serves as a reminder of a school community that was central to my development as an educator. Thanks for visiting.

Sample photos from "Humpty Blooms" exercise, Paragraph reminder, recognition of some hard work, and homework and quiz reminder
We had a fun time reviewing some of the images from this week's exercise. It demonstrated the flexibility of thinking that most of the students had towards something as simple as a Nursery Rhyme.
The questions were posted on yesterday's blog post. We answered the two questions from the B section, which concerned Prime Minister Trudeau's comments. The Bloom's Taxonomy questions will be used in an upcoming, open-book, test using the "Long Road to Canada" article from What in the World.
A glimpse at a handout provided to the class on paragraphing:
Recognition of some recent hard work:
