A National Resource Directory of Aboriginal Literacy Programs
Authors: Beverly Anne Sabourin
The Language of Literacy: A National Resource Directory of Aboriginal Literacy Programs is the first directory of its kind in Canada. It attempts to gather, in narrative form, critical–core information about the operations of Aboriginal literacy programs throughout Canada — from east to west to north. It is a comprehensive, representative sample of Aboriginal literacy initiatives operating in both urban, rural and remote regions of the country.
Under the direction of a group of passionately committed, resource-strapped, often isolated and always busy literacy coordinators and practitioners, these Aboriginal literacy programs offer learners and students opportunities to reacquaint themselves with the challenges of learning. These programs are almost always learner-centred, operating in a welcoming and nurturing environment that moves at the pace of the learner, recognizes the integrity of the whole person, and attempts to remove the negative baggage and experience of previous institutional education experiences.
This resource directory is meant to serve as a thread of contact among these "diamonds in the rough", serving, it is hoped, as a point of convergence, as an opportunity to share information and learn from the vast depth of experiences which comprise the important arena of adult learning within Aboriginal communities.
This directory lists community-based literacy programs for children, families, parents and other adults in New Brunswick. It provides helpful information for those wanting to access literacy programs in their localities, and for educators and others who refer people for literacy education and support. In addition, it will be useful to organizations wanting to build liaisons, and for communities seeking to create more coherent, comprehensive and connected provisions for literacy learning. This directory contains two main sections: a listing of province-wide programs and a listing of programs by county.
This directory lists programs and initiatives that provide literacy education and support throughout New Brunswick.
The first section lists province-wide programs that operate in communities around New Brunswick, while subsequent sections list local programs and initiatives by county.
For each entry, the directory provides information about when, where, and for whom the program is offered, and who to contact for more information or to enrol. It also notes whether there is a fee for the program.
The initiatives listed include workplace programs, as well as those aimed at adults, children, families, and people with learning disabilities.
This document is a revised edition of a directory that was originally published in 2009.
This directory is based on the information forwarded in the report Linking Literacy Providers. The report identified the expressed training needs of the QLA membership suveyed across the province from April through June 1998. Nine training category themes were developed and explored. The directory is divided into these categories, namely: curriculum: planning, assessment and evaluation; computer technology; family literacy; general training; learning disabilities; motivation and psychology; organizational effectiveness; resources; student services.
All workshop presenters presented in the directory have completed a Workshop Information Outline for each workshop. A synopsis of the following information is included for each workshop listed in the directory: presenter's name and contact numbers; workshop title; intended audience/participants; workshop duration; general style of workshop; aims/goals of the workshop.
The Saskatchewan Aboriginal Literacy Network published this directory in the hope that it will be the start of an ongoing process of cataloguing current Aboriginal literacy programs and culturally relevant resources that have been developed within Saskatchewan. The directory will enable information to be shared about current Aboriginal literacy programs and initiatives and will ensure that new or existing initiatives may utilize the expertise of those programs already in existence.
