I am currently in ERDG 425 – Diagnosis and Remediation of Reading Difficulties and we have been working one on one with students at the Ranch Ehrlo Transition school. Prior to taking this course I had no idea that a school like this even existed. I was shocked that as a soon to be graduate from the University of Regina’s Education program I was unaware of the educational opportunities within and surrounding our city that work outside of the mainstream model.
I think that as future educators we need to start thinking outside the box, and familiarizing ourselves with educational situations that do not fit the K – 12 model is just one place to start.
If you are not familiar with Ranch Ehrlo, I highly recommend that you look it up–along with any other educational facilities that Regina has to offer!
Just last week a reporter from the Leader Post came and interviewed some of the ERDG 425 students about the program. Have a look at the article!
