In this strand, comprised of three lessons, participants will be introduced to some models of the education continuum. It builds off Strand One in its exploration of the different features of education and how best to integrate them into a continuous, well-aligned and integrated system. In this strand, participants will become acquainted with different models of the education continuum, with an emphasis on bridging and aligning the B-3 span. It provides concrete examples, as well as tools, to support leaders in building better aligned systems in their own school buildings and beyond.
Structure of the Strand
