About the Session

AUDIENCE: K-12 EDUCATORS AND EDUCATIONAL STAFF ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.

Calgary Regional Consortium (CRC), on behalf of Alberta Regional Professional Development Consortium (ARPDC) is pleased to announce an interactive e-workshop entitled Literacy & Numeracy Progressions.

Designed to build awareness and understanding for educational staff related to the new literacy and numeracy progressions, this e-workshop is accessible 24-7 to accommodate the busy schedule of educators and educational staff.

Join this self-paced learning opportunity to:

  • expand methods and deepen understanding of literacy and numeracy progressions across grade levels and subject areas.
  • participate in on-line discussion groups related to integrating the new literacy and numeracy progressions across the curriculum. Current practices and strategies will be shared.

After completion of the criteria outlined in the "Course Overview" tab, participants will earn a  Certificate of Completion. Completion of the required components will take approximately 10 to 12 hours in total, and must be completed prior to the session end date. Alternatively, participants can also choose to explore the e-workshop materials at their own pace, to suit their own personal needs, instead of working towards a certificate.
