The Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg (RCGW) has been dedicated to promoting literacy and developing lifelong readers since 1956. We have a proud history of being a literacy leader in Winnipeg and its surrounding area. We are a Special Area Group of Educators (SAGE) of the Manitoba Teachers' Society and a local council of the International Literacy Association.
RCGW provides professional development for educators, shares resources and ideas on our website, celebrates I Love to Read month, promotes literacy in the community, honours literacy leaders and up-and-coming teacher candidates, and supports literacy projects. Join RCGW today!
The Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg has curated the following short list of resources to support teachers during the COVID-19 pandemic. We know there are many resources already shared online, and we are encouraged to see so many organizations around the world stepping up to support learning in these challenging times. We are thinking of you and hope you and your family take time this week to relax and recharge despite the uncertainty ahead.
Please note that all RCGW meetings and events are currently postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please continue to check our site for more information.
