Literacy: Looking at the Immigrant Experience

Welcome to Literacy: Looking at the Immigrant Experience, a learning and teaching module that looks at newcomers to Canada as they work to increase their literacy levels in English or French. This module includes resources available for instructors to respond to a variety of needs.

The two-hour module looks at the profile of newcomers to Canada, the challenges they face, and a number of ways to respond to these challenges.

Designed for groups, organizations, and institutions providing services for immigrants, this learning and teaching tool uses information and video clips from the CMEC literacy forum, as well as questions and group activities, to engage users and stimulate reflection on improving the literacy and language skills of newcomers to Canada.

Further reference materials and resources on this subject are provided in the module.
