2014-15 Letters to BC Colleagues

These letters represent the collUntitledective, professional voice of BC teachers as they explore, collaborate, inquire, and reflect on their practice. The teachers from CR4YR have generously agreed to share their words with colleagues who are on the same quest: How can we best meet the needs of our young readers?  We hope these reflections and suggestions help to continue our conversations and start new ones.

Thank you to all CR4YR teachers, teacher advocates and provincial facilitators for your tireless commitment to investigating best practices for student learning.

Updates

What are CR4YR teachers exploring?  What are they learning about their students?

The updates are based on case study records from teachers across the province,
and include sample inquiry questions, and direct excerpts from the case study records
(unedited).  They provide insight into practices that CR4YR teachers were finding
promising, and include teachers’ observations about their students.
