The provincial curriculum is designed to introduce the major topics within each subject and give students time to explore the concepts to their fullest. The Science curriculum include the subjects of biology, chemistry, physics, ecology and environmental science. There is a focus on project-based learning so that students can go through all stages of scientific inquiry when learning about a topic. The Math curriculum focuses on the topics of numbers, patterns and relations, measurement, geometry, and Statistics and Probability.

It is made up of the Director of Programs and Student Services, the Assistive Technology Specialist and Facilitator, the Consultant for Autism & Learning Centers, the Coordinator for Student Success Planning, the Coordinator for French Second Language (FSL) Programs, the Coordinator of Programs (Curriculum), the Literacy Mentor, the Coordinator of Technology Integration & Data Management, and many other individuals.

Chalk Talk: Prompting Students for Comprehension

Quality reading assessments not only evaluate students’ fluency and accuracy but also their comprehension of the text. Students are often asked to “retell” a story in their own words, but sometimes—especially for younger or struggling readers—teachers need to prompt students in order to gauge their comprehension. When prompting a student to retell a story, a teacher may ask him/her to explain the story—in his/her own words—to a friend or family member or to someone who has not read it. A teacher may ask a student about key ideas in a text, asking what the author is telling the readers, to describe the main points or most important parts, etc. Sequence may be focused on to ask the student what he/she learned first, next, and after that. If vocabulary is important, a student may be asked about any important or special words the author uses. In a text that uses textual features, such as charts, graphs, pictures, maps, a teacher may prompt students to ask why these are important to the story, what information they tell the reader, and what they learned.
