Linden Teacher Beth Alexander Featured by Ontario College of Teachers!

We are delighted that the Ontario College of Teachers has featured Linden teacher Beth Alexander in their June 2018 publication, Professionally Speaking.

Article Excerpt:


As a group of nine girls surround a work table, science teacher Beth Alexander, OCT, asks each the same question: “What’s your goal for today?”

For the Grade 6 students at The Linden School in Toronto, this class is playtime. The students have created games using circuits. One devised a football trivia game; get enough questions right and a ball will y over a mini-goalpost. Other students are toying with variations of tabletop hockey (or foosball), where scores light up or buzz.

Over the next hour, the students saw, glue, cut and test batteries, and then work on assembling their inventions. Alexander oats from student to student, answering questions without imposing her thoughts about how the games should work. When one student wonders about the approach she’s taking, Alexander says: “Try your idea — what’s the worst that can happen?”
