Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dawson Creek District Curriculum
The new curriculum will ensure that essential elements of learning are applied consistently, individual teachers will have freedom and will have the ability to personalize learning and differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs of each their students. The curriculum will also balance the “big ideas” that drive instruction that students need to understand with the foundational skills they learn as well as develop critical thinking and communication skills. Each content area will have a set of core competencies, and Aboriginal content will continue to be embedded.
The new curriculum will be fully and officially implemented in grades K-9 by the 2016-17 school year and in grades 10-12 by the 2017-18 school year. The assessment will be redesigned to align with the new curriculum. The district offers special academic programs and initiatives such as 21st century learning, Aboriginal education, career programs, French Immersion, the International Student Study Program, outdoor and experimental education, Reading Recovery, and Project/Inquiry-Based Learning.

Chalk Talk: The Long ‘A’ Sound
The long ‘A’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Students can distinguish this from the short ‘A’ by learning that the long ‘A’ sounds exactly like how they would say the name of the letter ‘A’ (“aye”). Words such as cake, skate, and fate contain this sound. As is evident from these examples, words that follow a CVCV (consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel) pattern and end with an ‘E’ almost always make a long ‘A’ sound. This is in contrast to how words with a CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) pattern generally contain a short ‘A.’ There are also many letter blends that sound like a long ‘A.’ These include AI (rain), AY (stay), sometimes EI (veil), and sometimes EY (they).
