A Montréal School for All (AMSFA) Professional Development for 2020/2021

R08 Développer l’habileté à inférer, le vocabulaire et la sensibilité lexicale (recherche collaborative)

DÉVELOPPER L’HABILETÉ À INFÉRER, LE VOCABULAIRE ET LA SENSIBILITÉ LEXICALE POUR SOUTENIR L’APPRENTISSAGE DE LA LECTURE : UNE RECHERCHE COLLABORATIVE
(cohorte 1 : préscolaire 5 ans)

Avant même l’entrée à l’école, les pratiques de littératie dans le milieu familial favorisent le développement de compétences précoces en lecture, comme les habiletés de compréhension et le vocabulaire. Or, nombre d’élèves issus de milieux défavorisés ont acquis à la maison des compétences différentes de celles valorisées par l’école. Il est donc essentiel que l’éducation préscolaire reconnaisse et légitime les compétences développées dans la famille, puis propose des activités permettant à tous les élèves d’accroître ces compétences. La recherche démontre que, bien que le personnel enseignant à l’éducation préscolaire accorde beaucoup d’importance à l’éveil à l’écrit (noms et sons des lettres, conscience phonologique), il se dit moins outillé pour soutenir le développement langagier des élèves en matière de vocabulaire et de compréhension.

W12 Let's Talk about...

Description 

AMSFA’s Let’s Talk about… will include different topics related to effective pedagogical practices in disadvantaged area schools, centered on the values of equality, equity and social justice. This series of professional development will offer participants an opportunity to reflect, discuss, and share important practices relevant to teaching in a Montreal disadvantaged school. 

 Let’s Talk about … 

 
Goals 

  • Know, understand  and reflect on equitable classroom practices  
  • Share equitable classroom practices

Workshops available on demand

W10 Universal Pedagogy

This workshop is designed to help teachers teaching in Montréal disadvantaged community schools experiment with teaching practices (such as project based learning) that take into account students’ interests, talents and prior knowledge as a means to develop every students full potential.

 Workshop Intentions

  • Define and describe concepts such as disadvantaged, school engagement, equity, and universal pedagogy
  • Explore practices that favour school engagement in disadvantaged school communities
  • Share classroom practices that model this approach to teaching & learning

(For the 2020/2021 school year, elements of this workshop will be offered by topic, in a shorter format, to interested school teams or cycles. Topics include: Personalized Learning Through a Project-Based Approach (Passion Projects and/or Personal Projects), School Engagement, and The Importance of Student Voice.)

Schools interested in mini workshops on one or more of these topics can email :

W11 Numeracy Development (in a Montréal Disadvantaged School)

Research shows that students need to engage in hands on learning in order to construct mathematical reasoning. For students living in Montréal disadvantaged communities, it is even more important to use students’ own thinking and experiences to make sense of mathematical concepts.

Workshop Intentions

  • Distinguish characteristics of a Montréal disadvantaged school so that we can better understand our students and their families
  • Examine approaches in teaching and learning numeracy and problem-solving skills that are favorable in disadvantaged community schools
  • Practice and develop strategies that foster a conceptual framework where students do the sensemaking in order to deepen their understanding of mathematical concepts

(This workshop will be offered as of January 2021 to small school teams or cycles and can be tailored to specific needs and/or grades. It will be offered in-school on 2 days- dates chosen in collaboration with school teams- with a possibility of a third half day for planning.)

Schools interested can email :
