Description: Emphasis is placed on transition from traditional teaching and assessment to literature-based, whole lan gauge instruction and assessment. Teaching students to be strategic readers, writers and evaluators of their own literacy progress is emphasized. Through the Literacy Center on campus, two practicums assess children experiencing difficulties developing literacy skills and plan instructional programs of work that address their identified needs. Cross curricular connections are made through the integration of the language arts and other areas such as social studies, science and mathematics.
