Kugluktuk High School, in Nunavut
|Degrees:||Graduated with BA Honours Geography in Winter 2018|
I completed my practicum placement working as a high school geography teacher at Kugluktuk High School, in Nunavut. I was able to apply the knowledge and skills I learned while completing my Geography degree at Carleton University. My first placement had focused on teaching high school geography students about provinces and territories, while this second placement centered around the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement. The students were great, and the experience was fantastic. Teaching geographical concepts at the high school level served as an opportunity to review what I learned in my degree, while sharpening my teaching skills.
