Access our webinar to hear Neil Debassige, former principal of Lakeview School in M’Chigeeng First Nation and award-winner of the Meritorious Service Medal by the Governor General of Canada, present how he bridged the gap in early literacy. Using a three-year intervention and reading program he put education back in the hands of educators; empowering them with the knowledge, skills, assessment tools and resources to reach more children effectively.

Find out how the Confident Learners Literacy Program is supporting school districts across Canada to:

advance capacity building for educators through aligning the science of reading, teaching and assessment with classroom practice;
implement a systematic and explicit step-by-step approach to literacy development; and
employ a structured assessment and monitoring system to ensure full visibility of student progress.

Schools can meet the goal of teaching all children to read by the end of Grade 3. Working together we can help you transform the lives of your students, and give all children the opportunity to thrive.
