Announcing New Section entitled ‘Success Stories’

SaskReads Admin LOGO (web)-01

Hi,
My name is Liam Choo-Foo, Director of Education Chinook SD and leader of the Provincial Reading Initiative.  I would like to introduce a new section on the Saskatchewan Reads for Administrators website entitled Success Stories.

The intent of Saskatchewan Reads for Administrators is to provide some very practical tools and processes for administrators at all levels of the system to use in supporting teachers implementing Saskatchewan Reads, a framework for school divisions and systems to build their own reading initiative that meets the needs of their unique student population.

We know great things are happening in the province regarding the implementation of Saskatchewan Reads and we would like to feature your success stories. Once a month a ‘guest blogger’ representing a Division or First Nations Education Authority will write about how they have gone about implementing Saskatchewan Reads and readers will have the opportunity to ask questions.

This kind of exchange was very beneficial when we had our provincial meetings and we would like to continue the conversations.

The first guest blogger for February is Jennifer Dorval of the Northwest School Division.
Jennifer and her Northwest School Division Literacy Team worked on a Stirling McDowell research project entitled Instructional Leaders Supporting Implementation of Effective Literacy Instruction. The purpose of their study was to look at the most effective methods to impact teacher and administrator knowledge of research-based literacy strategies and instructional practice, thereby impacting (grades 1 to 3) student learning in the area of reading. The Saskatchewan Reads and Saskatchewan Reads for Administrators documents are a part of that story.

Wish you a great week!
Liam
