The Reading and Writing in Grade 3 – Lessons Learned document was developed based on an analysis of each administration of the Nova Scotia Assessment: Reading and Writing in Grade 3, and it specifically addresses areas that students across the province found challenging. This document includes lessons learned about Reading and Writing, and it also provides annotated student writing samples based on the provincial analytic writing rubric. This resource was developed to support classroom teachers and administrators at the school, board, and provincial levels, in using the information gained from this assessment to inform next steps for literacy instruction.
