Marilyn Spearin of Jarvis Collegiate Institute in Toronto has developed a special Grade 9 program to help recent immigrants quickly adapt to their new environment so they can begin to succeed in their science studies. She teaches students who are still learning English and adjusting to the culture of their new country how they can develop the necessary skills to keep up with other students in their classes. Ms. Spearin's explanations are clear and concise, and she uses plenty of demonstrations.
