Each Guided Journey unit has connections to key aspects of the Canadian Curriculum. Following are highlights of those connections.

Character Education

    • Generally speaking, there are many connections. The explicit, intention and focused attention to matters of respect, empathy, fairness, self-discipline, etc. parallels character education programs. As well, teacher modeling and debriefing of important behaviours is consistent with character education programs.
    • The quotations in Culture Connections provoke additional thought on citizenship and beyond the self. The situation cards ask students to reflect on their responses to others and to develop empathy and alternative choices to some responses (perhaps inappropriate) that are part of their existing repertoire. Specific focus on the situations and exploration of feelings and responses have the potential to lead to improved interpersonal relationships, positive school cultures, and positive behaviours.
    • Reinforces universal attributes – self discipline in particular and personal management, reflecting on personal choices and actions taken.

Classroom Management

    • Helps students take responsibility for, understand and learn from the choices they make. They are taught to assess their feelings, identify their options, make choices and take action to correct their mistakes.
    • There are many factors that dovetail with one of the main components of effective classroom management, that being: creating a safe, secure, trusting learning environment. The teacher's use of inclusive, supportive language is an integral factor in a positive learning environment. From it, students learn the implicit norms of the classroom culture.
    • Preventative measures to ensure student engagement and appropriate involvement.
    • Great tool for establishing purposeful, collaborative classroom cultures. Very concrete suggestions for establishing positive learning environments.

Teacher Education

    • A great tool for pre-service candidates or for a study group of teachers who want to reflect on practice as it relates to quality of relationships they want to model and foster.
    • Focuses on how teachers respond to student responses.
    • Connections to Barrie Bennet's Beyond Monet: The Artful Science of Instructional Integration

At Risk Students

    • Some excellent reflective questions and exercises to serve as a reminder that effective teaching goes beyond the content
    • Some key elements that connect to what kids need and value. There is much in the literature that is drawn from interviews with adolescents about their challenges at school and with those who dropped out; about how a caring relationship with one teacher who took an interest in them personally changed things for the better.
    • Students at risk need to have models of positive behaviour so that they can learn hope and optimism. These are learned dispositions and research shows that optimistic language and attitude impact on their hope as capable learners and human beings.
    • Interview with an inspirational adult to learn about how people overcome adversity and demonstrate resilience, is exactly what kids at risk need to hear about and experience.

Tribes

If your school/board is working with Tribes, there are many connections to Tribes. The teacher and student talk about inclusive community behaviours and collective communities is evident in both FISH! For Schools and Tribes.
