THUNDER BAY CATHOLIC SCHOOL BOARD – LEARNING AND INNOVATION PROJECT
Teachers with the Thunder Bay Catholic School Board embarked on a 4 month journey this spring (2022) to learn more about our complex, but coherent and logical spelling system, the relationship between spoken and written language, and current research about how we learn to read (and write!), with the goal of deepening their own understanding so they can implement strong literacy practices in their classrooms.
This was spearheaded by Mara Hockenhull, a wonderful teacher in the board who has been learning on her own and seeing amazing results with students! She has inspired others to learn along with her!
