May 20th, 2009 by Fiodhna

Based on an informal needs analysis conducted while supervising student teachers in both private and government schools in Abu Dhabi, I collated a list of publishers, suppliers, conferences, foundations and libraries in the UAE. This pamphlet was subsequently distributed during a presentation, that I gave to teacher educators in the Emirates College for Advanced Education, Abu Dhabi. These Literacy Resource contacts would be useful for teacher educators, teachers, parents and students in the United Arab Emirates.
