Sign up now, if you are a PK-12 Educator who would like to request a workshop to implement The Third Path into your classroom.

The Third Path was developed in response to issues being faced by today’s Canadian educators related to addressing mental and emotional health, cultural and gender identity, racism, and violence prevention, as well as other areas of diversity, equity, and well-being.

It views education as a journey of human development, not just for the student, but for the educator too.

The Third Path focuses on the how of education. The how is twofold: subjects should be taught through a Relationship-Based Approach, and within the Eight Conditions. The Relation-based Approach puts relationships first, and clarifies that it is through strong adult/child relationships that students learn and grow. The Eight Conditions extend the Relationship-Based approach and describe in greater detail the hierarchical series of needs that create a environment for all students to thrive.

Regulation
