Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Canmore District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum helps students develop the abilities needed for strong reading, writing, and communication skills and to be able to use them across disciplines. Students work with informational as well as personal texts to devise a better overall understanding of literary concepts. The curriculum also emphasizes strong research skills so that students can locate and evaluate information.
The science curriculum introduces students to many topics and the process that scientists use to study natural phenomenon. Students examine how energy sources were developed and are used today, and make predictions about their use in the future. The environmental impact of exploring these energies is also examined. Throughout these studies, students also develop an understanding for the processes involved in scientific inquiry, including the application of the scientific method and the use of tools and technology to acquire, analyze, and interpret data.

Chalk Talk: What Is a Reading Inventory?
A reading inventory is a type of assessment designed to determine what reading level a student is at. The test is as measure of a student’s decoding, fluency, and comprehension skills. While the student is reading the passage, the test administrator will be responsible for marking down any miscues (errors) that are made. After all parts are completed, the instructional reading level will be determined. The passage will be at the ideal instructional level—meaning not too difficult or easy—if the child recognized about 95 percent of the words and answered roughly 75 percent of the comprehension questions correctly. This helps students choose books that are appropriate for their level and helps teachers understand the individual strengths and weaknesses of each reader in the class.
