Hi Literacy Lovers!

In our recent podcast episode, Kim Lockhart, French immersion and special educator from Kingston, Ontario, shares how she meets the needs of students in her classroom. As stated in a recent report, The Right to Read Ontario Inquiry Report, Ontario is removing the three cueing system completely from all materials and turning to reading science instead. Listen to this episode to learn more about what is happening in Ontario after the release of this report, and what Kim is doing in her own classroom. We’re so glad you’re here to learn with us!
