The purpose of this web space is to provide a forum for the grade 6 literacy community in York Region. The site is meant to encourage the evaluation and analyses of the many definitions of literacy as pertaining to the Ontario Ministry of Education’s curriculum expectations for grade 6, with an emphasis on the reading component. An in-depth review of the Ministry’s language document will be compared to some of the recent research in literacy.

Grade 6 is a benchmark year in Ontario as it is one of the three grades for standardized testing for students(Grades 3,6, and 9). It is important to consider the EQAO administered test as it is used for assessing the success of the literacy curriculum. In order to create discourse that aims to increase achievement on this test, this web space will provide forums for parents, students and teachers to share ideas, practices and resources. Further, the links for test from previous years are also provided.
