Lucie Rivest, remedial teacher and educational technologist, has been creating educational resources for nearly 30 years. After the great success of his guide “Oh no, not a reflection! »For elementary school students, it is launching an edition specially designed for secondary school students.
"The idea of Oh no, not a reflection! "Came from a school principal who did not know how to deal with unruly children and who did not want them to copy," explains Lucie Rivest. She was therefore inspired by the repair system to create her material: ask the child what his intentions were, how he can repair his gesture, what he would have felt in the place of the other, etc. “If the secondary guide is as successful as the primary one, I will be very happy! »Adds Ms. Rivest.
For 25 years, Lucie Rivest has worked with schools, school boards and museums to produce the best educational tools for children. “The important thing is not whether the tool will be printed or multimedia, but whether the tool will allow the child to develop good strategies. According to the remedial teacher specializing in French, resources must also be diversified in order to preserve the interests of children.
Lucie Rivest works a lot with the Trécarré publishing house. From their last collaboration was born the series I read I understand, on the shelves for barely two months. These text comprehension notebooks are available for all elementary levels. The author hopes that the short texts will be appreciated by students and teachers.
Lucie Rivest also launched the first edition of the series at Trécarré. I study with my child, almost 20 years ago. “The goal was really to help parents, who are often lost through all the school programs, to revise with their child. Make it easy for the parent and enjoyable for the child. »Explains Ms. Rivest.
After the publication of this first series, most publishing houses embarked on the publication of review books. However, according to Ms. Rivest, most are not recognized at the educational level and are more at the level of the game. "It's a shame, says Ms. Rivest, because these notebooks flood the market even if they do not meet expectations. parents. "
In a way, all the students of Quebec know Lucie Rivest: it is she who composes the dictations of the Paul-Gérin-Lajoie foundation for 14 years. In 2010-2011, the PGL dictation marks the year of biodiversity. Approximately 400,000 Canadian and African children participate in dictation each year.
His collaborations with Quebec museums are also very numerous. For example, she set up the educational guide for the tropical food greenhouse at the Montreal Botanical Garden, which receives students of all levels. “The goal is always the same: to make links between society and the school curriculum. It is also a way of not overloading teachers and offering them interesting and turnkey activities. "
