Class Experience

  • Social classes satisfy BC’s curriculum/BC Ministry of Education for K–12 around communication studies through: acquiring and presenting information; focusing on intent and purpose in delivery; and connecting and engaging with others.
I'm cool with awkward moments and silence.  Growth happens in discomfort.  I leave space for connection.  I do make sure everyone gets a turn to speak, keep things safe, and as much as possible, I try to stay out of the way.   

This is a learner driven class.  They are getting to know new people.  I often don't know what they are talking about, and don't plan on keeping up with trends.  I'm curious when I can be, but I know enough to back off if the group is connecting over something that I've never heard of.  They aren't here for another adult perspective.   

I see their strengths.  Every person has value to offer and I am passionate about making an open space for learners to share and connect.   

I laugh at all the jokes 😉  
We are a Neuroaffirming Organization!  We support learners with different needs and meet them where they are at.  In our social groups, we can read out the chat, we can scribe and we keep the class together and don't use breakout rooms. 
I strongly recommend a mic and headphones for this class. We want to hear what you have to say!
This is a facilitated, not an instructional class.  There is no content on "How to Make Friends".  This is a social space where learners are encouraged to share things that are important or interesting to them.
This class is designed and delivered to support learners in achieving a high school diploma.   By engaging in communications studies using an online platform, learners can engage with audiences and cultures that they may not otherwise be able to access. The online classroom enhances the learner’s opportunities  to consider diverse perspectives, acquire information and present information for many purposes and audiences. The following are examples of competencies that are developed and supported in this classroom.
