University Collaboration with York University

Promoting the Academic Literacy Development of Generation 1.5 English Language Learners: A Pro-active Agenda

Dr. Sandra R. Schecter (Principal Investigator)

Dr. Karine Rashkovsky (Research Collaborator)

Promoting the Academic Literacy Development of Generation 1.5 English Language Learners is an enrichment-oriented project headed by Professor Sandra R. Schecter (York University) that aims to expand the range of literacy, numeracy, and life skills of students who are born or start formal schooling in Canada but speak another language in the home.

The project involves a collaboration between university researchers, high school students, teachers, school administrators, parents, and community members focused on developing the linguistic skills of Generation 1.5 students in tandem with their conceptual thinking, thereby enhancing their academic achievement. Brain Power Enrichment Programs, in particular, is taking on a central role in this cutting edge research; due to our unique enrichment programs and successful pedagogical approaches, we have been selected to contribute to the project in various arenas, including but not limited to, the field of learning enhancement.  We are proud to be a partner in this pro-active agenda!
