For many years, International Literacy Association members (previously IRA) have been active in British Columbia as BCLCIRA, LOMCIRA (Lower Mainland Council), CINCIRA (Central Interior Council), and VIRA (Victoria Council).
What has remained constant has been the passion of educators across the province for improving the literacy proficiency of our students. Members have gravitated to the International Literacy Association with the quest to become part of a community focused on considering and implementing the very best literacy practices for our students.
Some of the key changes over the years have been the expanding the conversation about reading to include writing, speaking, listening, thinking skills, neuroscience and technology.
People are busier and seeking our ways to build community in different ways. The British Columbia Literacy Council of The International Literacy Council is trying to respond to those changes by broadening the opportunities for engagement focused on literacy in the province.
We are very excited to outline what we have in mind and are certainly open to the suggestions of all of our International Literacy members in British Columbia.
Our website has some great information and links to the International Literacy Association site should you be interested in becoming a member. Currently all ILA members living in British Columbia are members of the provincial council as well and have a vote at the Annual General Meeting. The ReadingBC Facebook page has been revitalized and is growing daily. The intention is to have a page devoted to making connections with literacy educators, parents and advocates to further the conversation about books, interesting information and professional development. The Provincial Coordinator, Carrie Froese, set up this page and is the administrator at this time.
