Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Miramichi District Curriculum
Anglophone East School District uses a common curriculum, which outlines the goals and objectives of instruction and learning, along with all public school districts in New Brunswick. The curriculum is implemented in the following content areas: art education/visual arts, French Second Language/Immersion, English language arts, mathematics, music education, science, social studies, and technology education. At the high school, the curriculum is drawn up for each specific course.
The English language arts curricula are separated into achievement standards for reading and for writing for each grade level. The writing standards involve students being able to write several forms of text, using writing strategies and behaviors and how they show appropriate or strong achievement, and how different areas of students’ writing (content, organization, word choice, voice, sentence structure, and conventions) reflect appropriate or strong achievement. Students who display strong achievement are at a more advanced level.

Keeping Informed: Recent Miramichi Educational News
- BHS Students Try to Spark Music Memories in Seniors with Alzheimer’s - When a group of 28 students at Bathurst High heard a study about how music can help stimulate the brains of senior citizens with Alzheimer’s, they formed Music Memories. Students visit the seniors, learn about their hobbies and musical interests, research and upload songs on MP3 players, and loan the MP3 players to the residents so that they can enjoy listening to the songs. This allows the seniors to hopefully recall fond memories, as they listen to songs from their youth.
- Anglophone North School District Partners with Boys and Girls Club to Provide Breakfast - Countless studies have shown that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and is essential for leaning, but it is often the most missed meal. Anglophone North School District recently partnered with the Boys and Girls Club/Big Brothers-Big Sisters of Miramichi to offer school breakfast programs in 20 schools. The program will be open to all students, and as a lead partner, the Boys and Girls Club expects to serve breakfast to 4,800 students.
- Anglophone North Celebrate Orange Shirt Day - On September 30th, Anglophone North students and staff were encouraged to don orange shirts to recognize former First Nations students who attended residential school, the losses these students experienced, and how the residential schools impacted their lives.

Chalk Talk: Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development
Within Lev Vygotsky’s social development theory, he coined the idea of the “zone of proximal development” (ZPD). ZPD describes the difference between what a child can do independently without guidance and what he/she is able do with help. Students should be given activities that fall within their zone of proximal development. Children can gradually learn how to do tasks that they need help with on their own with guidance from the teacher. Vygotsky referred to teachers or more advanced peers providing support and guidance to students as “scaffolding.” As a student becomes more and more competent at a particular task, the scaffolds, or supports, are gradually removed until the child can complete the task completely on his/her own, without any help at all.
