Combined or Blended Classes

Information on combined or blended classes (having students of more than one grade in the same class) in both French Immersion, and English.

In the coming school year, there will be some blended or combined classes (having students of more than one grade in the same class) in both French Immersion, and English. This decision is based upon ensuring we offer the most balanced and smallest classes possible based upon our allocation of classroom teachers. There are no disadvantages to students being in a blended class as opposed to a one grade class. Research supports this practice and it is common through the world.

 

When placing students in all classes, educators consider a variety of factors, including number of students, number of boys and girls, and student interests, strengths, need, learning styles, motivation, work habits and emotional development.

 

In every classroom including a blended classroom, teachers teach to the child as opposed to the class.  Children are viewed as unique individuals. The teacher focuses in teaching each child according to his or her needs.  Teachers are trained at differentiating instruction, understanding the curriculum and employing a number of instructional strategies to address all learners needs.
