SD73 elementary schools received an Échos 1 PROguide Kit in 2016/17. Aligning well with the redesigned curriculum, Echos Pro offers expertise in pedagogy, assessment, differentiation, and cooperative learning strategies. Linking literacy learning with FSL learning, this resource shows teachers how to transfer strategies from first language teaching into their French classrooms.
