Adolescent Literacy Guide:Facilitator’s Guide

This facilitator’s guide supports facilitated professional learning using the Adolescent Literacy Guide (ALG). The facilitator’s guide includes many tools (e.g., protocols, strategies, templates) to promote effective professional learning which includes active engagement, a variety of perspectives and ideas, and an openness to inquiry and action. While these tools are included to support the material from the ALG, they can be transferred to other adult and student learning environments.

"We continue to work on this project that was originally supported by the TEACHER LEARNING and LEADERSHIP PROGRAM (TLLP) with the Ontario Ministry of Education. Our project Uncovering Content-Integrating Critical Thinking into Social Studies for 21st Century Learners was developed because as teachers we felt we needed to enhance our knowledge of using critical thinking questions and inquiry-based learning in order for our students to become actively engaged in their learning." - Louise Robitaille and Peter Douglas
