January 2022
Dearest Colleagues,

This past year was challenging and eventful to say the least, but we managed to achieve quite a lot together. L’Équipe-choc Pedagogical could definitely not have done it without partners like you. We are confident that 2022 will be equally awesome, if not more.
Please receive our warmest wishes for a healthy and successful year. We will keep updating you with everything that is happening in our network, and welcome you to attend our workshops and Après-cours. We are always available for you; do not hesitate to call upon our services.

All our best to you and your dear ones,

Julie & Micheline



Individualized and Multi-Level Teaching Après-cours

National Mathematics Workshops

Strategies for Reading Mathematical Statements

February 3 — from 8:30 to 12:00
In this workshop, we will share the results of our research and our reflections on the challenges encountered in Mathematics concerning reading.
  • By identifying common errors and challenges on how to adapt complex tasks to the specific needs of students;
  • By consolidating grammatical and lexical elements;
  • By consolidating strategies for representing the problem;
  • By organizing the points that make up a complex task.
In other words, we will be able to demystify linguistic obstacles in Mathematics.
Welcome to all CCBE and FBD math speakers!

Beating Self-Doubt

How To Beat Self-Doubt and Stop Selling Yourself Short

by Dr. Margie Warrell

The fear that fuels our doubt can drive us to be over cautious and keep us from taking the very actions that would help us and serve others. So how do we banish the doubt? We don’t. What we do is learn how to reclaim the power it has held over us.

The Art of Improvement

How to Stop Overthinking and Overcome Self Doubt

It takes time to break the self-doubt cycle, but you can do so by taking action despite your feelings and telling yourself what you believe about yourself.

by Karine Martin

Commitment can sometimes be difficult and push us to simply cut corners, postpone or neglect the task that needs to be done. How can we target and help students who have more difficulty with activation?
