Let's Get Back to Reading!


Reading is embedded in our lives!

Every day we read ourselves through life. The sense of sight is in constant use helping people to navigate the world. Text and pictures are everywhere and they are useful aids for moving forward.

Reading takes place inside and outside of the classroom.

Literacy Skills: Reading-Writing-Technolgy!

Think about it! How often do you need literacy skills in your life each day? Planning your daily commute may involve reading bus schedules, train schedules, or maps. In addition, technology, cell phones, computers, and the Internet, are examples of tools used to help individuals navigate through the 21st Century. The necessity for reading can occur at a desk, in an office, at a news stand, or maybe on a street sign, and when engagement with text occurs, literacy skills inevitably are required. Frightening? NO, not if society is prepared to meet the omnipresent literacy demand !
