Learning Forward Ontario proudly presents a new four-part event series that will lead to a new Ontario Literacy Network!
Join us virtually on Wednesday, August 25th, 2021 at 9:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. EST we launch a four-part Literacy Network Series. Our first guest speaker, Dr. Kathleen Gould Lundy, will discuss how literacy programs impact both the hearts and minds of students. As Dr. Lundy suggests: “As students work with various kinds of texts, playing with words, imagining different scenarios, and sharing interpretations, students learn to “read the world” that surrounds them. Reading, writing, listening, speaking and viewing become the foundation for an inclusive, vibrant classroom community where students fall in love with the power of language. As they are encouraged to use words to make sense of themselves in relation to others, their worlds become much larger: their thinking becomes more nuanced and their response to multiple perspectives becomes more critical.”
Following our guest speaker, participants will network with colleagues across the province about hot topics related to supporting literacy in primary, junior and intermediate classrooms.
