New Adaptations of Saskatchewan Reads!

SaskReads Admin LOGO (web)-01

Hello,

It’s been a while since the last post.  A new school year has started and great things are happening in Saskatchewan to support reading!

Below are links to two new resources prepared by Regina Public and Prairie Spirit School Divisions.  These Divisions have both adapted the Saskatchewan Reads documents to support other grade levels.

Regina Public has adapted the Big Ideas of Reading from Saskatchewan Reads to support the Middle Years.

Prairie Spirit has added appendices to reflect what the  Learning & Classroom Environment, Big Ideas of Reading, Assessment and Evaluation, Instructional Approaches, and  Interventions  could look like for K-12.

The Provincial Administrator Reading Team invites you to share how you are using and/or have adapted parts or all of  the Saskatchewan Reads document to support your students.  We also invite you to share any resources you have created as a result of using the Saskatchewan Reads document.  These could include support documents, assessment strategies, sample lessons, videos, etc.

Wish you a great week!
Provincial Administrator Reading Team

Saskatchewan Reads Research Highlights Exemplary Classroom and Leadership Practices

SaskReads Admin LOGO (web)-01

Hello,

The Ministry and the leadership of Saskatchewan Reads was interested in the implementation of Saskatchewan Reads. Dr. Jim Jutras conducted a formative research study around the implementation efforts of three school divisions.

The purpose of the study was to:
• determine progress in implementation of Saskatchewan Reads,
• identify the challenges of implementation,
• identify exemplary classroom and leadership practices,
• determine the value and impact of Saskatchewan Reads,
• make recommendations for next steps in implementing Saskatchewan Reads.

There are two versions of the final report of this appreciative research study:

The executive version of the report offers a concise review of the purpose and conduct of the study, its general findings, and recommendations for the next steps of implementation.

An extended version offers a more in-depth discussion of the findings and their connection to the recommendations, as well as additional positive exemplars and sub-recommendations. The extended version will be of most interest to Ministry staff and those who lead school division reading teams.

Rubrics were developed to determine key classroom and leadership practices. These rubrics are for teachers and leaders who wish to use them for reflection and for the self-assessment of their classroom and leadership practices.
We hope that you will explore this study and the associated rubrics to find new ways to ensure our students’ reading success.

This research study offers Saskatchewan educators information and ideas that will assist them in the successful implementation of Saskatchewan Reads. We hope that you will explore this study and the associated rubrics, and find new ways to ensure our students’ reading success.

We thank Dr. Jutras for this work,
