Hi there tout la gang,

We don't have much to say about research in practice at the Café right now

but we are talking policy and practice over here now: Literacy Enquirers.

word count

In Ontario and Manitoba we are celebrating our first-ever February statutory holiday. Family Day.

Saskatchewan started last year and Alberta has been taking the third Monday in February off since 1990!

Family Day or no Family Day, I know our loyal readers will check in so here is a Monday morning tidbit as usual.

Over at Literacy Source they have posted a 150-word history of English. Not quite 6, but pretty good.

Just think, I made this lengthy attempt. If only I had known.

The Literacy Source folks generally pay pretty close attention to word counts.
Here is how they explain scaffolding in their tutor workshop notes.

1. Teacher does it

2. Teacher does it, student helps

3. Student does it, teacher helps

4. Students do it

Perfectly pithy.
