About the webinar

Without literacy skills, children would not be able to compete favourably with their peers and function properly in society. Teachers must nourish these skills and help students become fully literate adults. 

This webinar is aimed at teachers of English in primary and middle school and those using English as a means of instruction. 

Participants will be introduced to a range of concepts unveiling the idea of literacy and why basic skills are important.
