 Professional e-Book DVD

  • An electronic version of the Professional Resource Book
  • Video-based professional development:
    • Canadian FSL classrooms in action
    • Video clips of leading FSL educators discussing current trends and practices in FSL
    • Video clips of administrators, teachers and students reflecting on the use of literacy practices in FSL
    • Pop-ups of practical tips, activities and definitions


I think that it's absolutely amazing! What a great resource for teachers. It is so comprehensive and has so many facets to it. There is really something for everyone to tap into. I really love the videos (both the educators and the teachers and students in the classroom).... they make it all come so alive! In our school division, there is a huge focus on assessment and differentiated instruction... so this is a real gift to FSL teachers (and coordinators)!
