Hot Topics in Manitoba

The end of February marks the closing of I Love to Read month! We hope it has been a great month filled with fun activities that promote our student’s passion for reading! And the best news yet, is spring awaits us, just around the corner. A reminder that there are upcoming events next month, including Bernadette Dwyer presenting Using Technology to Improve Reading and Learning at The Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Don’t delay, as registration for this valuable PD opportunity closes March 6th.

In hot topics today, the most recent edition of Literacy Today-Jan-Feb highlights important NEW ILA Research Briefs that will be of interest to everyone dedicated to teaching reading. The three briefs listed below provide cutting edge up-to-date information and can be downloaded and saved for future reference.

Children Experiencing Reading Difficulties

Right to Policies that Ensure Equitable Literacy Instruction

Phonological Awareness in Early Childhood Literacy Development  

In addition to this information the ILA also provides the biannual What’s Hot in 2020-And Beyond  as well as a call to sign on in support of Children’s Rights To Read which can also be found on our previous blog posts.
