The Third Path


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.


The third path shares eight hierarchical conditions that support student well-being and academic achievement: Safety, regulation, belonging, positivity, engagement, identity, mastery, and meaning.

Third Path:

  • Positive relationships and conditions for learning are necessary before any “curricular learning” can effectively take place.
  • Well-being will look and be different from student-to-student
  • Well-being IS NOT just about doing well in school so that you become financially well-off later in life.

Zones of Regulation

The Zones of Regulation is a framework that uses four colors–blue, green, yellow, and red–to help students identify their feelings and level of alertness.
