Every Child Can Learn: Accommodating Differences in Elementary School.
Fort McMurray Catholic Schools, Alberta.
This Alberta (Canada) guide highlights the practical connections among results-based or outcome-based, continuous progress, and integrated curricula. It describes effective educational efforts and beliefs that accommodate differences in learning and promote learning success, and invites administrative and teaching staff to participate in collaborative discussions and efforts that promote learning success for all students. The strategies described provide a practical look at how learner success can be encouraged within the framework of continuous progress, high expectations, standards, appropriate time, and support for learning. The first eight chapters contain a topical discussion, a list of sources for that topic, and a "reflection section" that provides questions for discussion and reflection. The eight chapters are: (1) "Developing the Vision: Clarifying Our Beliefs about Teaching and Learning"; (2) "What Constitutes Learning Success for Each Child?"; (3) "Contexts for Learning"; (4) "Identifying Learner Strengths in Planning Next Steps"; (5) "Instructional Practices that Promote Continuous Learning"; (6) "Assessing Learning Progress"; (7) "Reporting Learning Growth"; and (8) "Home and School Connections." Chapter 9 contains teachers' stories, and chapter 10 offers a summary and implications. Contains approximately 75 references. Eighteen appendixes include planning and criteria sheets, forms, assessment tools, and learning and instructional profiles. (TJQ)
