Native Literacy in Ontario: Areas for Development. A Discussion Paper for Ontario Aboriginal Communities.
The report on areas needing further development in provision of quality literacy services for Ontario's (Canada) native populations, based on site visits to native literacy programs, identifies seven key areas for change: (1) strategic planning for program development and implementation and advocacy; (2) program growth and administration; (3) native languages; (4) teacher training; (5) curriculum development; (6) standards and accountability; and (7) partnerships in delivery of literacy services. Each of these areas is defined and described, and some options for change are outlined for further discussion. In addition, literacy funding at the Ontario Training and Adjustment Board (OTAB) and the National Literacy Secretariat is described briefly. Appended materials include a list of OTAB-supported literacy programs, and a descriptive list of aboriginal stakeholder groups. Contains 15 references.
