The Report of the Expert Panel on Early Reading in Ontario. Toronto Ontario Ministry of Education 2003 p 4, Direct instruction in reading and writing is provided routinely in the. primary grades Grades 1 3 and junior grades Grades 4 6 However. students in Grades 7 12 are often required to use subject specific. vocabulary without the benefit of direct instruction to demonstrate. their understanding of highly detailed textbooks Textbooks frequently. contain a complex text structure formulas graphs and charts If students. are to succeed in content area subjects such as science mathematics. geography health and physical education the arts and literature. teachers must provide them with direct instruction about strategies. that they can use to construct meaning while reading and writing. The wide range of successful literacy strategies outlined in this booklet. can be readily adapted by content area teachers to provide students. with meaningful literacy experiences that will strengthen students. ability to succeed in all subject areas, Literacy instruction must be embedded across the curriculum All teachers. of all subjects from Kindergarten to Grade 12 are teachers of literacy.

building must happen at all levels from senior staff principals and. vice principals to coordinators department heads and teachers. Accordingly data is gathered each year on student performance from. Kindergarten to Grade 10 both to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses. at the board and school levels and to identify students who require. additional support The data is made available to teachers and school. leaders using Fathom Dynamic Statistics software which allows data. to be presented at a variety of levels and in a variety of formats to suit. the specific needs of the data user, Each year the data is presented at two secondary level Leader s Council. meetings and successful practices that have emerged from an analysis. of the data are shared At the elementary level Grades 7 and 8 the. data is presented at staff meetings where there is a particular emphasis. on identifying effective instructional strategies As well all board level. professional development activities for principals vice principals and. teaching staff are selected using this data as a quantitative measure of. strengths and weaknesses, For example as a result of data analysis the board trained Grade 7 9. teachers in the use of guided reading strategies for fiction and non. fiction texts Similarly Grade 9 applied mathematics teachers were. trained in the use of reading strategies in mathematics instruction.
