Our Community

Calgary Reads

Calgary Reads is a not for profit society whose vision is to create “a thriving community where all children read with confidence and joy.” To support this vision and develop professional understanding of literacy development, MRU teacher candidates spend part of their field experience participating in the Calgary Reads Wee Read or Read Up program. This literacy experience is integrated with the course requirements for the Language and Literacy Development course to foster strong theoretical and practical understanding.

“It’s amazing that in just a few short months we were able to make such an impact on a student.”

Quote from MRU Teacher Candidate


"I now know what it takes to help students who are struggling with reading. I know what things contribute to their reading and what I can do as a teacher in order for them to really excel at reading.”
