Our Conception of Literacy

Our conception of "literacy" is a wide-ranging one, embracing the numerous literacies required of individuals in the 21st century.

We promote a dynamic understanding of literacy acquisition and development and endorse literacy practices that encourage the development of creative, critical thinkers.

We believe that what is important and useful to diverse learners requires multiple approaches to teaching, learning, and assessment. As expressed in the UNESCO statement, “literacy must be seen as an activity embedded in social and cultural practice.”​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
