Educators Improve Student Learning

February 2, 2005 - Principals, vice-principals and Grade 4, 5, and 6 teachers from the Sudbury Catholic District School Board attended full day workshops dedicated to improving learning for junior grade students recently. The topics of study were based on the findings from the Expert Panel Reports in Literacy and Mathematics.

These reports are curriculum resources which were recently published and distributed by the Ministry of Education. Collaborative dialogue between the school partners quickly led to development of strategies to improve classroom practice. In turn, the implementation of these strategies will ultimately lead to higher levels of student achievement.

Each school in the Sudbury Catholic Board has selected a lead teacher in literacy and a lead teacher in mathematics. These teachers will be provided with additional training and time to implement the strategies within their own classrooms. In addition, the lead-teachers will be given the opportunity to share this research-based information with the other junior grade teachers in their schools. Junior educators, with the support of school administrators have been invited to journey forward in their quest of best practices to improve learning for all students.
