    *Literacy First: What is it? KMention the basis of the Literacy First document as outlined on the Alberta Education website http://education.alberta.ca/teachers/program/literacy.aspx paragraph three and four:Education has developed Literacy First: A Plan for Action. This Kindergarten to Grade 12 action plan supports the vision, values and goals of the provincial literacy framework Living Literacy: A Framework for Albertas Next Generation Economy (September 2009). In addition, Literacy First: A Plan for Action supports the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC) Literacy Action Plan and Learn Canada 2020. Literacy development is a shared responsibility. School authorities, school leadership staff, teachers of all grades and subject areas, parents, communities, and students must all work together. Alberta Education will work with partners and stakeholders to ensure that students develop the literacy skills and strategies they need to succeed in lifelong learning, employment, and citizenship.

    *Point out that Literacy First identifies six key themes.Mention that although all 6 themes are equally important and inter-related, todays session will focus mainly on Theme 3-Literacy as a factor in high school completion rates and Theme 5 - Literacy professional learning for all K-12 teachers

    *Discuss the implication of the Alberta Education definition of literacy in Literacy First p.3 using the focus question on the next slide: How does this definition impact what you believe needs to be done and howin your context?.

    BrainstormFor this activity, invite participants to use the text tool on the slide and list the technologies they know that support communication and collaboration.Moderator: Write three headings on the slide: Often, Sometimes, and Rarely.Then ask participants to use the selector tool to move their responses underneath the heading that best describes how the frequency in which they use that technology.

    **This slide is to set the focus for todays session.Read the focus questions aloud:How has access to new technologies and communication tools evolved what it means to be literate?What are implications for educators and education?Invite participants to consider their responses privately.

    Ask participants to read over pages 1 4 of Literacy first.Ask them to consider these questions:What are our students communities? To whom are they communicating?What will be the assumptions their communities have?How will they participate fully in their futures?When participants have completed reading ask them to put at green checkmark in the participant window.Discuss responses to the questions.
