Secondary Science - New Teachers - Orientation 2021

Welcome to Kativik Ilisarniliriniq’s Secondary Science Programs. Here, you will find all the necessary information and resources to teach science in Nunavik.

1. Basics of the KI Programs   

1.1 Access to Pedagogical Materials

Printed Materiel

All student books and teacher guides for both Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 should already have been ordered before the end of the previous school year and should be available in your class or the school.

Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 student books and teacher guides are printed in house by KI printing department in Montreal. A KI printing catalogue is available digitally on the DBSERVER or through the link below.


Materials can be ordered using the order form found at the end of the catalogue..

Digital Materiel

There are two ways to access digital materials at KI:

  • Teams/SharePoint, accessible from anywhere through the Internet;
  • the DBServer, a local server accessible in each school.

To access the resources available on Teams/SharePoint, you will have to login using your KI username and password (the same you use for emails). Join the teachers’ Community on Teams and find the secondary science channel or access the SharePoint folder directly.

Learn more about the KI teachers’ Community on Teams >>

Any KI developed materials and other resources can also be accessed via the DBServer.  This is a local in-school access only but does not require internet. See the video for how to use and navigate the files on the DBServer to find the math materials you need.

1.2 Pedagogical Support for Teachers

Your Secondary Math and Science Educational Consultants are available to support you by telephone, email or ZOOM for any questions regarding programs, educational or organizational issues or simply adapting to living in Nunavik. We provide in-person visits to your school at least once per year as well as ZOOM workshops or “drop-ins” or meeting by telephone.

2. How to Teach Secondary Science in Nunavik

This section describes the programs in detail by videos and Powerpoint presentations.

3. Term by Term

This section will give you general term planning guides and evaluations.

As well, you will be directed when to place your orders for science materials for the next school year and when you will receive the anonymous survey on the program coverage.

Term 1

By this time of year, your principal should be able to give you the number of students for the next school year’s class groups. It is your responsibility to place orders for the following year. This is true even if your teaching assignment changes or if you leave the school where you have been working this year.

Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 student books and teacher quides are printed in house by KI printing department in Montreal. A KI printing catalogue is available digitally on the DBSERVER. Materials can be ordered using the order form found at the end of the catalogue.


Cycle 1 – Block C

The following video explains how to select the KI final exams for your own class.


Cycle 2 _ Block D

The following video explains the set up for the KI final exams.



You will receive a link from your Ped. Counsellor at the beginning of May for a survey regarding the coverage of the programs during the year. This survey is completely anonymous but will provide a true picture of the coverage of the programs and better recognize and understand the realities of the teaching-learning context in Nunavik. 

Thank you in advance for your participation!
