June 2022
Dearest Colleagues,

Welcome to the last newsletter of the 2021-2022 school year! This newsletter is one that looks back on the last months, but more importantly, sets you off on a well-deserved break from another demanding school year.

As the end of year is a good time for a bilan, we reflected on what we had decided was going to be our main objective for 2021-2022. We had set out to maintain our connection to the English network, and enrich our proposal in order to better support you and your community.

Over the last 10 months, we connected, discussed,and elaborated. We assisted, presented, and visited. All that we achieved had the same underlying goal: success for all. Our goal for the next school year will be to continue to strive to provide the best possible services for you and your community.

Whether you spend the summer months poolside with friends and family, alone with a big whole pile of books, or on the road with your loved one, make sure to do everything in your power to enjoy this most-needed downtime and recharge your batteries for the upcoming school year.

We look forward to working with you again.
Have a restful and safe summer!

Julie & Micheline

Inhibiting Impulsiveness: an Essential Executive Function

by Karine Martin

Managing inhibition is a daily challenge for all of us. All you need to do is engage in a game of Simon Says or Neither Yes Nor No to realize how hard it can be to inhibit an automated reaction.


Wrap Up

by Giovanna Salvagio

For our final issue, we thought we would consolidate all the tools and elicit your feedback. We invite you to reach out to us if you would like additional support in integrating a tool in your class(es).


RÉCIT AGE’s Project RISE is about blending subject-specific, pedagogical, and technological knowledge by supporting teachers and consultants in the creation of interactive digital learning resources that are suited to our Quebec curriculum and our adult ed learners. 

This year RISE teams have been working to develop learning situations for the following courses:
  • ECM-5101-1
    Consuming Goods & Services → Looking at consumption through the lens of social media & online shopping
  • SVI-3120-3
    Taking Initiative at Work → Includes the use of an interactive notebook for students to record their learning in preparation for stage
  • CST-5004-1
    Doing an Assignment → Flexible format so students can do this course concurrently with other courses that involve big assignments
All resources will be shared online on the RÉCIT AGE and Équipe Choc Pedagogical websites at the start of the 2022-2023 school year.
