A Week of Co-Taught Lessons

Monday, March 15th to Friday, March 19th

You just need more time.

More time to grade, more time to lesson plan, more time to collaborate with colleagues, more time to explore new ideas, and more time for your own self-care.

While we can’t add more hours into the day (or make Spring break come any sooner), we can join your class for an hour and facilitate a lesson.

Yup, a lesson you don’t have to plan – all you have to do is just show up with your students.

We’ve teamed up with Microsoft Canada & Minecraft Education to bring you a week full of virtual lessons for you and your class for FREE!

So what is a "co-taught lesson?"

Think of us as your virtual guest speaker.

You’re tired of reinventing the wheel for each lesson, so that’s why we take on the lesson planning, curriculum connections, facilitation of the lesson, and provide you with next step activities to continue the learning.

We will join your class through Teams Live allowing your students to join from the classroom or virtually.

Teaching in-person?  Project us on the screen if you are in-person.

Teaching virtually?  Send the livestream link straight to your students to join.

Plus, 2021 is already hectic and overwhelming enough, so no prior ‘learning’ is required by you!

Exploring our Sustainable Development Goals (REPEAT)

No field trip forms required; we’re bringing the Puzzle Room to you with Microsoft OneNote!

You have questions. We've got answers.

Nope – that would be a lot of checkouts to complete and we’re all about saving you time!

Please just register the educators of your class (teacher, EA, support staff, etc.)

Please do not register your students.

Yes!  As a parent, you can totally register to receive a link to our lesson (we do encourage you to send this information to your child’s teacher to let them know!

We also know that some students are off on Spring Break during the week, so this is great programming for that week as well!

YES! We know things change quickly in the world of educators (especially when we are talking across Canada!), so all of our lessons are recorded.

Sign up for the ‘live lesson’ and you’ll receive the recording 24-hours after the lesson takes place.

Best part?  You can use the recorded lesson anytime that works for you!

Nothing!  We want to keep all student information private and will never ask you to share it with us.

During the livestream lesson, we’ll be using an interactive form.  The form only has two questions:

  • Your first name (or your teacher’s name – and optional!)
  • Your answer to the question asked

This allows us to interact with your class, while keeping their personal information safe.

What could you do with one less lesson to plan?

Whether it’s investing that hour back into your students, or giving it to yourself (we encourage the latter), let us help.

Head over to our listing of workshops to sign your class up for FREE!

Can’t wait to see you inside the lesson.
