These workshops aim to support meaningful literacy experiences for students who may require direct, individualized support from school staff and/or family to participate in the program.
The Building Engagement in Literacy program provides an opportunity for students to connect virtually with engaging literacy activities. Students will participate in shared literacy activities, which support concept development. Visuals used during instruction will consist of simple line drawings and photographs, with low complexity (e.g., bright colours, good contrast, minimal background clutter). Individualized materials (digital and hard copy) will be provided to each student, which may include adapted books, experience stories, and overlays for student’s light box.With individualized support, students enrolled in this workshop will have the opportunity to:
- Make text-to-self connections.
- Recognize salient features of visuals.
