Emerging Themes

Three key themes emerged based on school reports and DSB reports: Content, Professional Learning, and Monitoring Learning

Image representing the key themes of effective teaching and learning. Effective Teaching and Learning happen where Professional Learning, Content and Monitoring Learning meet.

Challenges associated with each key theme were also identified:

  • Content challenge: Learning more about “insight into children’s mathematical development”1
  • Professional Learning challenge: Difficulty of building consistency within schools and across districts
  • Monitoring Learning challenge: How data feeds into developing priorities and plans for teaching and learning
