ESL Literacy Network

Abstract: 

The ESL Literacy Network is an innovative website that responds to the needs of Learners with Interrupted Formal Education (LIFE) and addresses the professional development needs of ESL literacy practitioners in Alberta. This site, funded by Alberta Employment and Immigration, showcases comprehensive, research based information, resources and tools. The website provides an in-depth look at ESL literacy levels, learning needs, programming considerations, curriculum development and strategies for classroom instruction. The content provided on the website is based on years of classroom experience at Bow Valley College combined with research and feedback from ESL literacy practitioners locally, provincially, nationally and internationally. The website recognizes that ESL literacy programs are diverse and serve different learner populations in both urban and rural contexts and in part-time and full-time settings. The ESL Literacy Network is the recipient of the 2011 National Adult Literacy Database (NALD) Innovative Technology Award.
