Learn to Read-Read to Learn @ Your Library: Developing Creative and Literate Learners
Stewart, Paulette; McLean, Evadne
International Association of School Librarianship, Paper presented at the School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship (Brisbane, QLD, Australia, Sep 27-Oct 1, 2010)
Against a background of low literacy among many Jamaican children and young adults, the Learn-to-Read-Read-to-Learn @ Your Library was launched by the Jamaica Library Service and the Library and Information Association of Jamaica. The year-long program seeks to develop creative and literate learners through reading, writing and artistic expression. It is hoped that by the end of the year participants would have improved their literacy and creative skills and be better able to cope with the communication demands of everyday living.
