Position Description

The students will create educational discovery/inquiry boxes and design accompanying classroom activities for French Immersion Social Studies and/or Sciences classes at the secondary level (grades 8-10). The students will consult teachers to identify the key content and targeted curricular competencies that the inquiry boxes would help French Immersion students develop.
