Our Partners


The book Envisioning a Collaborative Response Model provides our school with several practical tools and ideas in furthering our systematic responses to intervention. Kurtis Hewson has provided our team with knowledgeable and personalized consultation. Moreover, he has linked us to a professional network of like-minded schools, and in doing so has facilitated practical, cost effective professional development.

John Holmes
Principal - Kate Chegwin School

I have worked with Kurtis and Jigsaw Learning with two different schools spanning K-12 and alternative education. He has done an excellent job differentiating guidance for the creation of a school/program specific CRM model and the delivery of professional learning. Kurtis is an excellent facilitator providing engaging and relevant learning activities for educators. Jigsaw Learning has been very helpful to both of the admin teams with which I have worked in responding to our requests as well as helping us anticipate next steps and future needs. Their work continues to be practical, user friendly, professionally empowering, research based and continually evolving.

Carolyn Jensen
Principal - Memorial Composite High School

We have been working with the Jigsaw Learning team for 3 years now, and are impressed with their ongoing teacher support and instructional coaching for teacher collaboration. They are very respectful and interested in Îyîniw Mâmtohnehicikan (Cree thinking) and Nehiyaw Pimatisiwin (Cree Ways of being). They work collaboratively with our teachers to offer support, coach and share ideas, plus they review the progress made in each school. Students really look forward to the CRM Focus time, as they have great success in these blocks.Their significant success was apparent in the first year that our school implemented the Collaborative Response Model. We started with 80% of our students needing urgent intervention and 0% of our students at/above benchmark. By the end of the first year, our urgent intervention numbers dropped to 43% and our at/above benchmark numbers increased by 12%.

Qu’est-ce que nous pouvons contrôler? Alors qu’allons-nous faire?

Il arrive souvent que les participants se découragent quand ils commencent à se pencher de façon collaborative sur les besoins divers des élèves et qu’ils se concentrent sur des facteurs échappant largement à leur contrôle. « Le locus de contrôle » est une activité à faire avec l’ensemble du personnel . Celle-ci permet d'aider les enseignants à se concentrer sur les situations qu'ils maîtrisent et sur lesquels ils ont un impact.
