Literacy is the ability, confidence and willingness to engage with language to acquire, construct and communicate meaning in all aspects of daily living (Alberta Education, 2015).
Numeracy is the ability, confidence and willingness to engage with quantitative or spatial information to make informed decisions in all aspects of daily living (Alberta Education, 2015).
A major part of our professional learning plan for 2015-2017 is Literacy and Numeracy: Learning Deeply where
- teachers intentionally support student learning in literacy and numeracy through their content area teaching and
- teachers identify, assess and target teaching to our students who are struggling in reading or mathematical understanding
The links below lead to documents from the 2015-16 school year and for the 2016-17 school year which illustrate details of our Literacy and Numeracy: Learning Deeply plan.
