Literacy development is a communal project, and the teaching of literacy skills is embedded across the Ontario curriculum. However, it is the English curriculum that is dedicated to developing the knowledge and skills on which literacy is based that is, knowledge and skills in the areas of listening and speaking, reading, writing, and viewing and representing.
