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.

Friday, August 10, 2007


The finalists for the Canada Post Awards were announced on July 25. Sorry I missed it. Congratulations everybody. A special shout out to some friends of the café.

Wendell Dryden Saint-John, NB

Known for his kindness and his participant-led approach to learning for adults with low literacy skills, Wendell helps students write their own learning materials and has made computer literacy and e-learning part of his adult class. He is also a committed community literacy worker, who delivers reading material to the doorstep of low-income adults.
Lana Faessler Waterloo, ON
With Lana as Executive Director, Laubach Literacy Ontario has produced many innovative projects to strengthen literacy, including a website of resources for volunteer trainers. In addition to defending and advocating for adult learners across the province, Lana continues to volunteer for the literacy field in various capacities and is the Director of Project Read.
Patricia Brady Toronto, ON
For the last 11 years, Patricia has supported adult learners in Ontario through her activities as Adult Learner Coordinator at the Ontario Literacy Coalition. She was nominated for the Educator Award by a group of learners who say they have been empowered by her guidance, the gift of her time and her enduring belief in their capabilities.

We are so proud of you. And proud to know you.
Please add your own shout outs to your own friends on the list by making a comment below.

P.S. Let's all work on getting Patricia back into the field ~ if we let this good literacy worker down, we let all of us down.
