Student learning occurs in many ways both inside and outside of the classroom and school. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, students have participated in virtual learning experiences facilitated by educational partners. Approved presentations will contribute to important topics from a community perspective and centres the lived experiences of individuals on issues of identity, discrimination and histories. Resources from other levels of government, such as the City of Toronto, will be also be used where appropriate. External presentations must be grounded in classroom teaching on the topics addressed to ensure that students have multiple opportunities to develop a complex understanding of the issues and topics raised.
External presentations and learning opportunities be integrated proactively into school assemblies and classroom learning.
