Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Amherst District Curriculum
Effective classroom practices to help students master content and develop critical thinking skills are influenced by strategies in the areas of instruction and assessment, classroom curriculum design, and classroom environment. 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 Instructional Framework provides clarity as to the research-based instructional practices to be used, serves as a guide for incorporating the provincial curriculum expectations, supports teachers in their professional growth, helps align and focus the curriculum within CCRSB, and promotes consistency among the schools and families.

Chalk Talk: Types of Reading Substitution Miscues
When assessing students’ reading—particularly when using the Direct 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, and one such type is a substitution error. The process of identifying the errors and keeping a running record is called miscue analysis. A substitution miscue occurs when a student does not know a word in a passage and substitutes it with a different word. An example of a substitution is as follows: “Andy loved the sweet scent of chocolate chip cookies/Andy loved the sweet send of chocolate chip cookies.” Obviously, this is an example of the child substituting a word with a different, single word, and the teacher would mark this miscue by writing the word send (the substituted word in the example) directly above scent (the actual word).
