The Journey Toward Improving Early Literacy – Hastings & Prince Edward District School Board’s Story
LD@school met with the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board to learn how their work on improving early literacy aligns with the recommendations. This video tells the story of their journey.

This webinar will discuss the essential components of Early Literacy Instruction: oral language, vocabulary, phoneme awareness, and alphabetic knowledge.
