November Update

November is here and the weight of report cards is sitting firmly on everyone's shoulders.  This is the time many of you will be engaged in a variety of assessments to determine your students' progress in relation to the curricular outcomes.  So...aside from the pressures of managing pandemic safety protocols and teaching - you have a new layer for consideration.

Once the report cards are written, parent meetings are done and with that renewed clarity around each student; their strengths and gaps, this is the perfect time to make sense of your next teaching steps with the help of an instructional organizer.  Please see the Tutorial for Using an Instructional Organizer for some guidance in this regard.  Feel free to adjust the also included blank organizer so it best suits your purposes.

Syd Korsunsky will be adding his voice to our website, asynchronously.  Over the next month you'll see Reading and Writing Strategies and Processes to support all middle years' teachers.  His work brings a practical and useful "how-to" as you work to ensure your students learning experiences focus on the essential.

As always, stay healthy, stay strong and know you are making a difference!

Congratulations on surviving the first month of school as you helped students implement safe protocols across the school and in your classrooms.  I've had a chance to talk to teachers and principals across the province and they unanimously say how tired they feel after just one month.  This may indicate our need to move to teaching and learning, the things we know and understand as our mandate; our comfort zone.

You will notice a change to our home page.  We will be making every effort to allow all of you to see at-a-glance what is new on our front page and what new resources have been placed on our member access only pages.  You will also continue to find the many resources you use on an ongoing basis.  Thank you to the many educators provincially and nationally who regularly contribute to this website.
