TDSB Marks First Ever Pineapple Week

Friday, November 02, 2018

TDSB Pineapple

From Monday, November 5 to Friday, November 9, educators across the TDSB are put pineapples on their classroom doors to invite others in the school to visit & share their classroom learning.

During the 2017-18 school year, Program Coordinators across the TDSB came together to look at a different ways for teachers to learn together by observing the teaching practices of others. The idea of a TDSB Pineapple Week came from an idea to promote a more unstructured way to encourage professional learning at the school level.

With over 170 tweets, TDSB had a glimpse of the enthusiasm, energy, and expertise of our educators in all roles, grades and subject areas! Recognizing the excellence within our schools leads to positive school culture and models adult learning. Putting a spot light on teachers learning together ultimately benefits student learning.

What is an Exploration Classroom you ask? Exploration classrooms are spaces in which to learn, explore, and improve together. When students are involved in an exploration experience, they learn how to better work together through real examples. Most importantly, exploration classrooms support student achievement and well-being by building instructional excellence through the sharing of knowledge and best practices.

All TDSB educators, administrators, central and support staff are encouraged to participate and share what they’ve learned on social media by using the hashtag #tdsbPINEAPPLE.

Our Mission
To enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and well-being
and to acquire the knowledge, skills
and values they need to become responsible, contributing members of
a democratic and sustainable society.
