Western Québec School Board

English Language Arts (ELA)

 

Welcome to the English Language Arts (ELA) Department within the Western Québec School Board (WQSB). Here at Western Québec the ELA team is dedicated to providing instruction that impacts student achievement and success from Kindergarten to Secondary V. Western Québec believes that the quality of education comes through effective teaching. The ELA team is dedicated to growing and supporting our ELA teachers through a variety of valuable professional development sessions.

Our English Language Arts Program follows the Québec Education Program and is heavily entrenched within the Balanced Literacy Model. This model focuses on the foundations of literacy which offer our students time to read, time to converse and time to write. This holistic model allows our students at Western Québec to develop a wide range of literacy skills and ultimately graduate with the necessary skills to venture into post-secondary education.

Throughout the year WQSB administers regular reading assessments to help monitor the progress of our student success. The reading assessment tool is the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System. Our teachers are also familiar with the 6 Traits of Writing, which helps to foster a dynamic writing program within our ELA classrooms board wide. Additionally, our teachers are frequently exposed to new resources throughout any given school year by lead teachers or the ELA team itself.
