Saskatchewan Reads in Action – Success Stories

Saskatchewan Reads


A new section has been added to the Saskatchewan Reads for Administrators website which you will find interesting! The new section is entitled Success Stories where once a month a ‘guest blogger’ representing a Division or First Nation Education Authority will write about how they have gone about implementing Saskatchewan Reads.  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 Success Story for February came from the Northwest School Division where Jennifer Dorval, Coordinator of Student Services and her NWSD Literacy Team shared their Dr. Stirling McDowell research project. Their actions and goals in the research were to bring Saskatchewan Reads to life in classrooms across their school division. It is an excellent read!

The Success Story for March comes from Lloydminister Public School Division.  Trisha Rawlake, Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, on behalf of her team describes the literacy journey her division began in the fall of 2012 and how the introduction of Saskatchewan Reads supported their literacy initiative for Grades 1 through 9.  Another inspirational read!

Happy reading!

My name is Tessa. I started my teaching career this year in Grade 1. I have a lot of questions about the English Language Arts program and especially about teaching reading. What is important to understand about reading? How do I teach reading? Where do I begin? What does it look like?

Follow Tessa as she discovers the answers to these questions and many more. Welcome to the online resource developed for elementary educators by the Provincial Reading Team. It includes instructional strategies, videos, sample lessons … and more.
