Starting Points: Creating environments for literacy teaching and learning in Community-Based Agencies (2009)

Partnering for Literacy Programs

This document grew out of an initiative of the Widening Access for Adult Literacies project carried out in NE Edmonton between 2006 and 2008. The initiative involved offering literacy classes in partnership with community-based agencies.

Project leaders found that locating literacy programs within community-based agencies helped reduce barriers like lack of transportation and the need for childcare. Also, many learners were already familiar with the agencies and felt comfortable trying new programs there.

This resource was developed during the project and includes sections on creating holistic environments to support learning; organizing programs; and ideas and resources for teaching and learning.
