Saskatchewan Reads Big Ideas and Instructional Approaches Adapated for Grades 4 - 8

In order to provide division focus and deliver a consistent message and common understanding about Saskatchewan Reads, a live one hour webinar was broadcast for the Regina Public School Division on April 16, 2015 from 4:00 - 5:00.  The live webinar has been recorded and posted for future access to ensure that all grades 1 – 3 teachers and their Administration will be introduced to Saskatchewan Reads.  Administrators will be expected to view either the live webinar or archived webinar as a team with the grades 1 – 3 teachers in their schools.   Other teachers beyond the targeted audience of grades 1 – 3 are invited to view the webinar as well.  The webinar will be formatted to provide an overview of the Saskatchewan Reads document along with opportunities for discussion and reflection as a school based team.  In order to extend the common understandings and expectations for reading instruction beyond this year, it will be an ongoing expectation that grades 1 – 3 teachers new to the division, with the support of Instructional Consultants and Administrators, access the archived webinar and participate in the supporting activities.
