Teachers in Pembina Hills

ERLC Comprehensive Literacy

Teachers in Pembina Hills have been working with Karen Loerke from the ERLC examining what a comprehensive approach to literacy looks like.

In this on-going set of professional learning days, mentor teachers work alongside new teachers. As PHRD moves into strategic planning, talks are underway for how to make this model sustainable in years to come. If you are interested in learning more about this model or a comprehensive approach to literacy, contact Karen Loerke at the ERLC (karen.loerke@erlc.ca) or Mark Thiesen (mark.thiesen@phrd.ab.ca) for more details.

Wouldn’t you like to learn grammar and word choice using people sentences rather than worksheets!
