Welcome to the SW1 Literacy Wiki


The purpose of this wiki is to increase communication between teachers in all the SW1 schools. The Wiki is organized in the following manner: Each page has a specific focus, such as assessment, EQAO or the Daily 5. Each page begins with a description of the topic, followed by teaching videos and / or articles (when available). The pages also have templates, teacher tracking sheets and book recommendations. Our goal is that you will use the information to assist you in your classrooms. We welcome all contributions to the site, since its sole goal is to network with all the teachers in our FOS. Enjoy!!!
