Series: Beyond Worksheets
For the past several years, literacy practitioners across the province have continually requested more professional development and resources to support numeracy facilitation in their programs. In direct response to this request, Metro Toronto Movement for Literacy (MTML) hosted the workshop, “Facilitating Numeracy: An Introduction,” developed and delivered by Tom Ciancone in August 2001. The purpose of the project was to develop an approach for contextualizing the teaching of numeracy in adult literacy and workforce literacy environments. This report uses an approach that sees numeracy as social practice and adopts a holistic way of learning.
