Student Work Sample 6

HoTLaNe Academy

A grade 4 Indigenous student retained the information gained from international travel and applied it to a writing task during HoTLaNe lessons.

In this work sample, we see geographically relevant vocabulary related to international wars. We also see connections to recent news events related to the war in the Middle East.

The literacy progress demonstrated as a result of HoTLaNe lessons was substantial, having demonstrated 1.5 years growth in two weeks.

This philosophy of education is impacting students academic achievement.

“I see them as young adults, transformed from their past, no longer a liability but an
asset; able to build value into the lives of people that they know, rather than dragging
them down. I see them being a productive, rather than a destructive adult.”

“I want them to know that they can go beyond their immediate world. I want them to GO
beyond their immediate world.”
