Assessing Literacy Reading Levels: Evaluating Aboriginal Literacy Material
Author: Nancy Cooper
Format: Paperback
, 2009
  • Over the past years, literacy practitioners have been asking for a tool that blends various assessment approaches into an easy to use format so that learners working on improving their reading and writing can be assessed at the level or grade of their choice, whether it is within the LBS Skills Levels, the Essential Skills Levels, or the Ontario Common Curriculum Grades 1-10.

    Ningwakwe Learning Press has developed this Assessment and Evaluation Matrix in order to provide a graphic representation of the LBS Skills levels in comparison to the Essential Skills and the Ontario Common Curriculum. Learners and practitioners will be able to see what Reading levels learners may be at in all three areas. Practitioners, both new and seasoned, will be provided with an overview/review of all three of these assessment processes and why they may be important to keep in mind.

    Think of it as a quick resource guide, a one stop place to brush up on assessment and to find out where to go for more detailed information on the assessment of their choice.

Format: Paperback
, 2011
  • Collaborating to Support All Learners in Mathematics and Science

    Grade: for grades 5-12

    In this second volume of It’s All About Thinking, the authors focus their expertise on the disciplines of mathematics and science, translating principles into practices that help other educators with their students.

    How can we help students develop the thinking skills they need to become successful learners?
    How does this relate to deep learning of important concepts in mathematics and science?
    How can we engage and support diverse learners in inclusive classrooms where they develop understanding and thinking skills?
    In this book, Faye, Leyton and Carole explore these questions and offer classroom examples to help busy teachers develop communities where all students learn. This book is written by three experienced educators who offer a welcoming and “can-do” approach to the big ideas in math and science education today. In this book you will find:

    insightful ways to teach diverse learners (Information circles, open-ended strategies, inquiry, manipulatives and models)
    lessons crafted using curriculum design frameworks (udl and backwards design)
    assessment for, as, and of learning
    fully fleshed-out lessons and lesson sequences; inductive teaching to help students develop deep learning and thinking skills in Math and Science
    assessment tools (and student samples) for concepts drawn from learning outcomes in Math and Science curricula

Native Learning Styles: Revised Edition
Author: Janice Brant
Format: Paperback
, 2002
  • "According to Native traditional teachings, a human being consists of four parts—spirit, heart (emotion), mind and body. In a holistic learning process, the adult learner is encouraged to develop him/herself as a ‘whole person’ who has the capacity to balance his/her spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical energies and capabilities.

    Whole person development is achieved by helping the adult learner to identify and then, to develop his/her innate human capacities to spiritually see, to emotionally fell, to mentally think, and to physically do. Once the adult learner is familiar with and has developed each of these four aspects of self, then she or he must find a way to balance these capacities first, within his/her self, and then, second, in his/her interactions within ever-expanding circles of relationship and involvement with the outside world”
    - Diane Hill

    This revised edition of the original ‘Native Learning Styles: An Assessment Tool’ retains much of the same information that has made this book so popular over the years. The updated version incorporates the findings of Diane Hill’s Masters thesis through Saint Francis Xavier University, entitled ‘Holistic Learning: A Model of Education Based on Aboriginal Cultural Philosophy’.

The Learning Pathway
Author: Meagan Mutchmor
Format: Paperback
, 2013
  • The Learning Pathway is intended as a companion document to your current mathematics instruction and as an assessment tool you can use throughout the school year. The Learning Pathway is based on extensive research that shows all students progress through three global developmental stages (Counting, Part-Whole Thinking, and Proportional Reasoning) when learning the key topics in mathematics. It is designed to help you do the following: Plan ongoing assessment to determine your students' points of strength, as well as plan next steps for instruction. Focus on key growth points that students travel through as they consolidate their content knowledge and apply their learning in real-world contexts. Plan focused instruction to meet your students' needs, as well as guide formative assessment and reporting to parents. Differentiate your instruction for student learning, according to the math that is just beyond each student's current ability. Highlight the important roles that Knowledge, Application of Knowledge and Modelling and Communicating Mathematical Thinking play as students construct their understanding of concepts in mathematics. Use signposts that follow the principles of student global developmental stages of growth in mathematics. Establish a bridge between actual classroom practice and the curriculum.
