Fort Qu’Appelle – The Rural Teaching Experience
This was an amazing experience that my peers and I will never forget. It was specific to the middle years program at The UofR.
We stayed at a camp for 2 weeks (going home on the weekend) and went to our designated schools everyday
We were in pairs for this internship
My partner was Laura Shepherd and we were assigned to grade 8 at Burt Fox High School. There was a group A and B of grade 8 students. The first week we were group A and the next we were with group B. We switched groups because they had different subjects in their semesters and we wanted to experience all subjects.
Waking up at camp and off to our respective school all within 30min away
Burt Fox had a therapy dog! I love dogs so this really excited me. He came in the morning with a teacher and went home with the same teacher at the end of each day.
We were in a high school so we got to work with many teachers. This was me teaching a health class.
These are images I used for a University Art Project we were assigned to do after our internship.
