We've got lots of language arts resources!
Welcome to UVic Libraries! My name is Pia Russell, and I'm UVic's Education Librarian. Throughout this guide I've outlined resources held by UVic Libraries on the teaching of language arts, English, and Literature using British Columbia's K-12 curriculum. Thanks for taking a peek at this library guide; let me know if it was helpful.
Your course instructors are the best sources of information for an introduction to the teaching of language arts in BC schools. Ask them for their recommendations for useful introductory resources.
Let me know if you have recommendations for additional resources to be listed on this guide, I am always looking for great new resources.

She has experience in literacy teaching and research in a variety of contexts and with a wide range of learners including students, teachers and clinical professionals in K-12 language arts, in other school curricula (such as literacy in mathematics), and health literacy in schools and in other health contexts such as clinics and in Nursing education. In this video, she discusses her current research project on health literacy and it's application in schools. She explains how the media can influence health literacy and how important it is for adolescents to learn ways to critically assess media messages about health and health information.
