What is LEAD?
The role of the Learning Enrichment and Development (LEAD) Centre at Lower Canada College is to enable and support the diverse learners in LCC’s community. LEAD promotes research-based educational practices in collaboration with LCC teachers at all levels.
- Appreciate and respond to significant differences in individual students’ modes of learning, self-regulatory processes, use of learning strategies, time-management skills, and executive functioning profiles;
- Facilitate academic success for all students regardless of their learning profiles;
- Support teachers to meet the increasingly diverse needs of the classroom;
- Support LCC’s understanding and use of current best educational practices for diverse learners.
The History of LEAD at Lower Canada College
The LEAD program began in November 2002, in a tiny office, and only involved one part-time teacher, LEAD founder Judy Shenker, and five Junior School children. Today, the LEAD department provides direct service to more than 100 students and employs six full-time and two part-time teachers, as well as one administrative assistant.
The LEAD Space
In order to provide service to our growing numbers of LEAD students, the LEAD department is located in a beautiful, modern space on LCC’s second floor, conveniently situated between the Junior School and the Middle and Senior Schools.
