Literacy Programs That Work (2004)

Sharing Knowledge and Experience

What makes one literacy program more successful than another? High quality literacy programs share many principles in common. These principles are often referred to as "best practices" or "good practice". Both of these terms are used to describe what works best in a particular situation or environment.

This document features examples of successful programs that have been delivered in Nunavut. These programs were developed using many of the principles outlined in the introduction, for example, a quality program:
-is developed using the resources and expertise already available in the community,
-is based on the culture and language of the community,
-is built on the needs and strengths of the participants,
-has widespread community support,
-is flexible, and
-welcomes all participants and treats every one with respect and dignity.
