MFNERC, UManitoba partner to launch language literacy program

July 26, 2017

The University of Manitoba and the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre have developed and launched a Masters Inclusion Language Literacy Program. Offered through UManitoba's existing MEd program, this initiative is designed specifically for the special education and language and literacy needs of special needs students in First Nations schools. Graduates of the program will be fully qualified language and literacy coaches. These graduates will also have the option to continue coursework in order to become reading clinicians. The program’s opening ceremony was held at Yellowquill College, where students, Elders, and representatives from UManitoba and MFNERC gathered to celebrate the unique opportunity. NationTalk | MFNERC (1) | MFNERC (2)
