Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Humboldt District Curriculum
The schools emphasize experimental learning which is student-centered, activity-based, and hands-on; it involves experiencing, sharing or publishing, analyzing and processing, inferring or generalizing, and applying to new situations. Independent study allows students to become autonomous learners and be responsible for the planning and pacing of their own learning. Interactive instruction requires heavy discussion and sharing of ideas and thoughts among groups of students.
The curriculum provides many opportunities for indirect instruction, which is student-centered, and instead of the teacher being the lecturer, he/she acts as a facilitator and supporter. Students are engaging in inquiry, problem solving, reflective discussion, drawing inferences, and investigation and discovery. Indirect instruction may require teachers to pre-teach some skills and processes, but it can typically be effectively used in any lesson.

Keeping Informed: Recent Humboldt Educational News
- Students Hone Their Journalism Skills During Conference - Students from Horizon School Division were able to participate on an e-journalism team during the National Congress on Rural Education. The students were able to interview notable speakers, create videos, write articles, and post on their work on social media.
- Junior Achievement, Horizon Have Unique Partnership - The recent partnership between Junior Achievement Saskatchewan and the Humboldt and District Chamber of Commerce will allow students in the Horizon School Division to be exposed to lessons from experts in areas such as workplace readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship.

- Humboldt Students “Vote” - Thanks to Student Vote, which provides a student-centered election curriculum complete with tools for the students’ very own voting booths, students from across Humboldt were able to vote in a mock election. A third and fourth grade teacher at the Viscount School said her students have been able to think at a high level— understanding the importance of being informed before voting—and were surprised to hear how long it took women, Aboriginals, and individuals of Asian descent to be permitted to vote in Canada.
Chalk Talk: Reading Repetition Miscues
When assessing students’ reading, 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. The process of identifying the errors and keeping a running record is called miscue analysis. One type of miscue is a repetition, or regression, miscue, which occurs when a reader repeats a word or portion of the text. If repetition is happening frequently, this may indicate that the text is too difficult for the child. If a student is repeating words very often, especially in a text that is too challenging, the flow in the reading will be disrupted, and it will be difficult for him/her to comprehend the text. This shows why it is so important to understand students’ reading abilities and provide them with texts that are at an appropriate level for them.
