Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Truro District Curriculum

The Chignecto-Central Regional School Board Instructional Framework guides the instruction in the school district. Strategies in the areas of instruction and assessment, classroom curriculum design, and classroom environment all feed into effective classroom practices. Instruction and assessment strategies include the implementation of quality teaching practices, the use of data, the differentiation of instruction to meet the needs of students, helping students gain new knowledge and deepen their understanding.

The DOE Curriculum Documents, unit design, and achievement tracking are all important components of classroom curriculum design. Classroom environment strategies involve classroom routines, student engagement, and relationships. The purpose of the Instructional Framework is to provide clarity as to the research-based instructional practices to be used, serve as a guide for incorporating the provincial curriculum expectations, support teachers in their professional growth, and help help align and focus the curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Reading Miscue Analysis: Recording Miscues

When assessing students’ reading—particularly when using the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA)—teachers are often tasked with keeping a running record of not only the errors students make while reading aloud but the types of errors. These reading errors are called miscues. The process of identifying the errors and keeping a running record is called miscue analysis. It is important for teachers to mark the miscues students are making clearly so that they understand exactly what type of errors they are making, which can help them identify patterns in their reading struggles. For example, when a student substitutes a word in the text for another word, the teacher should indicate this by writing the incorrect word directly above the correct word. A special symbol may be used to indicate if a student substitutes a word with a non-word. When a student repeats a word or phrase, the teacher may underline the word(s)—two underlines would show that it was repeated twice—and mark it with a circled “R.”
