Cognitive Education Project by R. F Mulcahy( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cognitive Education Project centered at the University of Alberta undertook a 3-year longitudinal evaluation of two cognitive education programs aimed at teaching thinking skills. The critical difference between the two experimental programs was that one, Feuerstein's Instrumental Enrichment (ie) method was taught out of curricular content, while the other, Strategies Program for Effective Learning/Thinking (spelt), was taught directly within curricular content. The effectiveness of these two programs was compared with traditional instruction at grades 4 and 7 for 900 gifted, learning disabled, and normally achieving students. Results indicate that cognitive education was effective in improving student thinking, especially for the grade-4 learning disabled students, and to a lesser extent for the gifted students, in reading comprehension and comprehension monitoring. The spelt program tended to produce more positive changes than did the ie program, and spelt was better received by teachers, parents, and administrators, although both programs were favorably received. Eleven tables and 40 figures present study findings. Twelve appendices include questionnaires, observation forms, anova tables, and teachers' parents' and principals' perceptions of the Cognitive Education project. (Contains 149 references.) (Sld)

Setting the direction framework by Alberta( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the request of school jurisdictions, Alberta Education conducted a comprehensive review of school jurisdictional practices with respect to students with severe disabilities in the fall of 2007. The review confirmed the need for a broader examination of how the education system can best meet the educational needs of students with disabilities and those who are gifted and talented. Setting the Direction for Special Education in Alberta was launched in early 2008 with a mandate to create a new framework for special education in grades 1 to 12. The framework recommends that the current special education system be replaced by an inclusive education system supported by effective policy, funding and accountability. This document outlines the Government of Alberta's response to the Setting the Direction Steering Committee's proposed vision, mission, principle statements and strategic directions

Objective measures of physical activity levels of Alberta children and youth by Canadian Fitness & Lifestyle Research Institute( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 2005, Alberta Education implemented a requirement for 30 minutes of Daily Physical Activity (DPA) for all students in grades 1 to 9. The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute (CFLRI) was contracted by Alberta Education to assist in the measurement of its DPA initiative. The project involved expert interviews, a literature review and the collection of step data to gather information regarding: promising practices; types of research and evaluation studies performed to date; types of measurement tools that may be useful; expert opinion of what should be measured both from an evaluation standpoint and a research standpoint; and a baseline measurement of the number of steps Alberta children take on average. This report provides findings from the pedometer data collection conducted in Alberta from April 1, 2005, to November 1, 2006 (including the oversample collected in the summer of 2006), as part of the CFLRI's Canadian Physical Activity Levels Among Youth (CANPLAY) study.--Document

The steps in the construction of the school building projects are: (1) the School Buildings Board informs the school boards of the funding amount, (2) the school boards plan projects and report progress, (3) school boards submit project tender(s) or subtrade tender(s) to Alberta Education, (4) school boards construct projects, (5) school boards receive finding payments, and (6) school boards may host official openings of projects. Five appendixes, which compose one-third of the manual, include: a glossary of terms; legislation, regulation, and policy statements; forms (E.G., new construction project application, expenditure plans, and project cost summary forms); utilization and capacity definitions and capacity calculations; and operational information with bibliographic references.

The Northland School Division Inquiry Team report to the Honourable Dave Hancock, Minister of Education, Government of Alberta by Northland School Division Inquiry Team( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a summary of the Northland School Division (NSD) Inquiry Team's work, including information-gathering activities, findings and 48 recommendations for consideration and in-depth appendices. The nature of the Inquiry's terms of reference has generated a substantial number of recommendations, which range from broad in scope to those that are narrowly focused and specific. Additionally, there is a timeframe element to some of the recommendations: while many can be initiated immediately, some need to be dealt with ahead of others and some will require process over time. While the recommendations in the report are structured following the terms of reference, a more grouped and phased approach may be helpful for implementation.--Document
