PITA -Whistler Conference- April 12, 2014. A focus on supporting struggling students. Get information and register at

The BCTF New Teacher conference is worth attending. Two days of workshops and we are there.

We are also listing Pro D Days for each district as well to help you keep with your Pro D planning.

We the general ideas are:

Most of the site will be open to all.

Some of the site will be open only to Wiki Members... the idea is that we can post tests and can discuss more effectively that way in the member's page section.

This will mean people will need to register to see those pages.

To begin with we have created a YPS Members Page which is private to wiki members only to help create grade groups collaborative teams.
