Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cochrane District Curriculum
The curriculum promotes the constant re-thinking of essential questions and inquiry. Students will have to consider multiple perspectives, support their reasoning with evidence, and join in on discussions that require them to think critically. The curriculum will be rigorous, be relevant, and provide students with the necessary 21st century skills. The district provides a curriculum guide for each content area that outlines the standards and expected year-end learning outcomes for each grade level.
There are opportunities for students to learn about the performing arts as well. There is training to improve vocal quality, stage presence, and delivery of lines. Doing so allows them to gain an appreciation for conveying messages, developing characters, and composing scripts. Learners develop the ability to critically evaluate theatrical works as well, providing feedback to peers on the quality of facial expressions, voice, gestures, and theatrical technique. At the reflecting level, learners work on self-evaluation and evaluation of other actors in order to improve performance quality.

Chalk Talk: Identifying Reading Strengths and Weaknesses
Teachers may ask students to identify what they do well when reading and what they struggle with and what kind of books they like or dislike and find difficult to read. Such questions can help teachers recognize specific literacy skills students understand well and those they need improvement with. A formal survey in this mold that is often given to students is the Motivation to Read Profile. This profile includes both multiple-choice and open-ended interview question. An example of a multiple-choice question is how often does the student and his/her family visit the library, while a one-on-one interview question asks the student to tell the teacher about the most interesting book he/she ever read. Additionally, it is beneficial to gauge students’ perceptions of themselves as readers (i.e.: whether they feel that they are good or poor readers).
