Teachers and students in Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools can now access a literacy program created by Red Deer author Sigmund Brouwer.
Brouwer is the author of more than 100 fiction and non-fiction books for children and adults.
He developed the Academy of Writers over three years, working with teachers and students in 43 schools.
Academy for Writers is described as “self-guided lessons for teachers and parents to share with students, to maximize learning at home for narrative, expository and essay writing.”
Through the curriculum, Brouwer delivers short videos — usually about 10 minutes long — as well as writing activities and a guide for parents.
The program is for students in grades 4 to 8.
