Today, on the season finale of Brittney’s Reading Analyses, find out “what have been the results of education reforms on diversity in Canada’s education systems”! Just gonna throw it in real quick that West Kootenays = Best Kootenays. It was interesting to read about how different groups reacted to education reforms in different areas. Pretty relevant seeing as BC just adopted a new education plan…
Be sure to tune in sometime before December 15th when I’ll be dropping my completed ePortfolio – B.
Reading Analysis – Week Eleven
I’m coming to live from the snowy village of Fruitvale with this weeks update. We are looking at “in what ways do our education systems show the roots of progressivism and traditionalism” this week. It’s interesting to see that there are still many traditions held within our school systems today. I was talking to my mom about the topic of the week and she listed off all the traditions she still sees in the schools today that were there when she was a student (like sitting in rows at desks and the teacher being at the front kinda stuff). However, one of the schools in the district she works in has a super progressive approach, which is super interesting. Anyways, enough about my dear mother. Until next week – B.
Reading Analysis – Week Ten
This week we were asked ponder “what has been and continues to be required of students and teachers during times of national crisis and uncertainty.” It’s pretty bonkers trying to imagine what it would be like to be a student when your country was in the middle of a world war. I have nothing funny to add tonight so I’ll just head to bed now – B.
Reading Analyses – Week Nine
Surprise girl, I bet you thought you had seen the last of me. After a brief hiatus (kindly granted by TPL), I’m back with another stirring reading analysis. While reading the sources, we contemplated “how have ‘experts’ defined the healthy/normal child and what remains of such definitions for school policies?” Not gonna lie, these were some pretty interesting reads – B.
Reading Analyses – Week Eight
Greetings loved ones, this week we’re talking abo – oh wait there’s no readings this week! So as not to deprive you of my weekly comments, I’m still writing for all my fans out there. Try to hold on until next week when I can hook you up with my thoughts on our tantalizing question for week 8 – B.
Hey, it’s Brittney, Brittney Hedges, don’t adjust your, whatever device you’re reading this on. The current question is, “how can we school for equality based on lessons from the past?” Super juicy question, v relevant to my personal research project so I was LIVING this week – B.
Reading Analysis Week 6 – Brittney Hedges
Soo…this is the week I decided to miss because there was a lot of family and turkey going on. Stay tuned for next week’s analyses – B.
This week we wondered “how do the historical causes of the feminization of teaching relate gendered expectations for girls and boys in education?” I meaan I’m a girl and I want to become a teacher, am I just another statistic?! Weekly existential crisis beginning earlier than normal now – B.
Reading Analyses Week Four – Brittney Hedges
“Why have young people been compelled to attend school and should this still be the law?” – Yah girl let’s keep those kids in school – B.
Reading Analyses Week Three – Brittney Hedges
Hello Week Two, welcome to your tape. This week’s thought provoking discussion question was, “where do our ideas about childhood and education come from.” Enjoy this scintillating read – B.
