Responding to Text - A Research Development Grant in Action

Research Development Grant

In the summer of 2014, LCEEQ awarded a Resource Development Grant to a team of educators headed by Wendy King of the Eastern Townships School Board. The team included teachers from the ETSB as well as support from the MEESR ELA Evaluations team.

The goals included:

  • understanding exactly what response is
  • moving students away from “formula” writing of responses to more critical thinking and authentic discussions of the meaning they are making of the text and support for their ideas (including structures and features, and connections)
  • finding different ways of “practicing” response other than just the writing of full responses
  • understanding (and having students understand) the new response rubric

To see the project report and the resource videos produced by Wendy King and her team with support from LCEEQ’s Resource Development Grant program, click here.
