An online resource for teaching students with limited formal schooling
By [posts-author-link] on [date]
The Teaching Refugees with Limited Formal Schooling (LFS) Website was developed by the Calgary Board of Education in Alberta, Canada, to support educators working with students who a) have gaps in their schooling, b) are new to Canada and/or c) may have experienced grief, trauma and loss.
Recognizing that such students who have limited formal schooling (LFS) benefit from intensive & targeted interventions and supports, the website provides information (e.g., classroom materials, exemplars, publications) drawn from research and best practices literature from Canada and other English-speaking refugee resettlement countries, and the experiences of local practitioners.
Included on the site are instructional materials (e.g., programming ideas, sample units, videos), socio-emotional supports, as well as background information on refugees.
