New Brunswick launches literacy strategy!
The province’s strategy follows the release of last year’s report by New Brunswick Literacy Secretariat co-chairs Marilyn Trenholme Counsell and Liane Roy. The recommendations included: speech support for children, encouraging parents to sing, talk and read to their children under five, and providing better support of community-based learning for adult literacy. Her report also suggested that libraries appoint community literacy coordinators.
Some of the key priorities in the strategy, according to a release, include:
- Providing a single point of access for parents to maximize their child’s or children’s development
- Providing individual-based programs and services as well as intervention for children
- Discovering ways to provide learning opportunities outside the “traditional school day”
- Working with employers to address literacy needs for the labour market
- Support for adult learners that “advances them” towards their goals and potential employment
