Author: Réseau réussite Montréal (and its working group Comité montréalais Transition vers l’école)
Publisher: Réseau réussite Montréal
The five pamphlets of the Collectively Investing in 3–5-year-olds series will be released gradually over a 16-month period, lining up with the five key moments of a successful first transition to school. Simple and concise, they emphasize the importance of ensuring that all stakeholders—the children themselves and their families, support networks, daycares, and schools—are valued and work together. The pamphlets convey relevant information rooted in the real world for each key moment.
- Key moment 1 : Working together (coming in October 2023)
- Key moment 2 : Creating a positive first contact (coming in December 2023)
- Key moment 3 : Instilling an enthusiasm for school (coming in February 2024)
- Key moment 4 : Valuing skillsets
- Key moment 5 : Settling in (coming in September 2023)
Title: PIRLS 2021 International Results in Reading
Author: TIMSS & PIRLS International Study Center
Publisher: Boston College
Results from an international study conducted every five years indicate a reduction in reading achievement among fourth grade students following the pandemic in 21 of the 32 countries in which a comparison is possible with the previous study in 2016.* The study also links the results with a number of indicators, including socioeconomic status, literacy activities before starting school, school climate, and student attitudes toward reading.
*While the study is recognized as very reliable, the authors caution prudence when interpreting the 2021 results due to the exceptional nature of the pandemic and the variation in measures put in place to counter it. Moreover, comparison of results for countries and provinces that, like Quebec, have postponed the 2021 evaluation to grade 5, is treated separately.
