Spring 2001 MCL's Learners Advisory Network (LAN)
decided to gather stories from learners across Canada.
They wanted to bring true stories
from literacy learners to the attention of politicians
at the annual Literacy Action Day that fall. Their
aim was to make literacy issues
'come alive' for the politicians and others who
read the book.
During the spring and summer the
call went out to learners and by Fall over 200 stories
had been received by MCL from individuals
and whole classes. In 2002, another 100 stories
added. Now this document is an important
part of the traveling MCL display.
The LAN and
MCL are very grateful to all the learners, tutors
and administrators who took time to work with us
on this project.
