Literacy Support

General:

Literacy is more than just reading and writing. Literacy is all about making sense of the modern world. Teachers in School District 60 have the opportunity to learn together to share knowledge and good practice. The role of Literacy Support in our district is to consult, coach and collaborate with teachers with a common focus on growth and reflection. Together we learn!
