David Futter is piloting a student engagement program based around LID, supported by his School Board in Victoria, B.C. Canada. Last year several disengaged students at his school all told the principal that the only thing they liked the previous year was LID. He designed a program based on one student’s LiD topic in such a way that it covered all the mandated core areas. This year he will have two afternoons a week to work with 4-6 students to establish and monitor a LID program as their main program of study. Look for a future report on how the program goes. Good luck, David!
2014 has been a great year for LiD so far, as it spreads increasingly around the galaxy, becoming a staple of the curriculum in more and more schools. Since our last Newsletter, we have had additional schools take on the program in Chile, England, Australia, Ireland, U.S.A. and Canada, and no doubt other places we have not yet heard from.
