Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hinton District Curriculum

The district places a special focus on literacy and includes Levelled Literacy Intervention, benchmark assessments, and literacy strategies for adolescents. Initially there is a focus on comprehension strategies and developing the decoding skills necessary to understand various types of texts. Students learn how to respond to texts, understand different genres and text structures, and be able to incorporate these understandings into their own writing. Students are expected to respond to text through discussion, writing, and presentations that are aimed at improving their communication skills.

Grande Yellowhead Public School Division offers academic programs such as Locally Developed Courses, Career and Technology Foundation (CTF) and Study (CTS) Courses, dual credit courses, French Immersion, Work Experience, Video Conference Division-Based Courses, and First Nations education. The Learning Services team supports schools and staff in the areas of the curriculum, early childhood services, student services, technology services, and First Nations education.

Chalk Talk: The Short ‘U’ Sound

The short ‘U’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Words such as bug, cub, and mud contain this sound. These words all follow a CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) pattern, which almost always contain short vowels. In contrast, words that follow a CVCV (consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel) pattern and end in ‘E,’ generally have a long ‘U’ sound (e.g.: fume and huge). Words that begin with an ‘U’ sometimes—but not always—have a short ‘U’ sound; examples are ugly and umbrella. Words that have ‘U’ followed by double-Z’s, such as fuzz and buzz, make a short ‘U’ sound as well.
