Workshop for K-1 Teachers Launches January 23!
Catching Children Before They Fail… The Right to Read Program interactive on-line workshop goes live January 23. Developed by LDAA in concert with Foothills Academy, this 12-week, self-paced course provides Kindergarten and Grade 1 teachers with a screening tool, interventions, activities for teachers and parents, access to a reading specialist and in-depth knowledge to support their beginning readers. Register through Eventbrite.
Learning to drive? We have an APP for that! — Thanks to Telus Edmonton Community Board!
Announcing… The Alberta Learner’s Prep Kit App for Apple and Android smart phones and tablets! The app translates our successful Prep Kit flash cards into an effective digital version with videos and click-through definitions — keeping the helpful “I know it/I don’t know it” format for learning what you need to know to pass the test… the first time!
Thanks to Telus Community Fund for supporting the project — and to our partners the Alberta Association of Registry Agents who sell the flash cards through registries across the province, and the Alberta Association of Community Peace Officers who endorse the project and help us spread the word in Alberta’s schools.
