Overview

Why to study

This model reflects current thinking about optimizing the match between educational theory and children's levels of cognitive and social development. The Secondary Years stream at the University of Northern British Columbia, is designed to educate teachers to combine pedagogical excellence across disciplinary areas with a learner-centered approach to practice. Philosophically, the stream is designed around constructivist principles. It emphasizes approaches to practice such as inquiry-based learning, strategies for instruction, integration of language across the curriculum, inclusion of diverse learners and perspectives, the development of caring and respectful communities of learners, and reflective practice. Successful applicants to the Secondary Years stream are assigned to a cohort group of approximately 35 students and normally take all of their courses with that cohort group.
