Teachers as Scholars at King's (TASK)
March 28, 2014
More than two dozen secondary school teachers from across Catholic School Boards in Southwestern Ontario participated in Teachers as Scholars at King’s (TASK) on March 28th. They enjoyed seminars on such topics as The Medieval Werewolf: Fact or Fiction; Comics and the End of the American Consensus; The A B and C’s of Finance: Making Sense of Economics; and Racists, Skinheads and Modern America. All lectures were led by King’s faculty and were designed to provide intellectual challenge along with professional and personal growth opportunities for the visiting teachers.
King’s has developed dynamic partnerships with twenty-nine Catholic school boards and educational organizations including the Brant-Haldimand-Norfolk Catholic District School Board (BHNCDSB), London District Catholic School Board (LDCSB), Huron Perth Catholic District School Board (HPCDSB), St. Clair Catholic District School Board (SCCDSB) and Niagara Catholic District School Board (NCDSB). These Partner Boards have embraced the King’s objective to educate the whole person. King’s strives to provide an environment which engages the head, heart, body and soul and hopes that Teachers as Scholars at King’s (TASK) fulfills this objective.
The philosophical underpinning of TASK is that intellectual ideas inspire and transform all educators across grade levels and disciplines. TASK also provides a rare opportunity for educators from BHNCDSB, LDCSB, HPCDSB, SCCDSB, NCDSB and King’s to share their passion for teaching and learning.
