Lifelong Learning:

It’s Essential

What I loved and learned this summer at the Literacy Council

Summer studentIt’s just a few weeks until the end of the summer and the end of my time working as a summer student at the NWT Literacy Council. 

I love making connections with people, and this job offers many opportunities to do this.  I’ve interacted with the public at community events and workshops promoting all types of literacy.

Don't let the summer slide

School’s out and the summer slide starts! 

Summer slide?  It's not a new game, nor something you find in a playground.  It's the brain-drain that happens during the holiday months when kids are out of class.  Academic skills tend to slip away during the summer if students aren't actively engaged in learning.  Math, spelling, and reading skills suffer the most.
