(IN PROGRESS, MORE TO COME…)
Free online courses, lesson plans, tip sheets, podcasts, and interactive web-based exercises are now available to adult literacy and ESOL instructors and learners. The ProLiteracy Education Network (EdNet) is a recent addition to other ProLiteracy Services and provides a useful supplement to tutor training. Tutors may find new techniques for teaching reading, writing, and basic life skills. EdNet offers an impressive array of formats that tutors may choose to incorporate in tutoring sessions.
Online courses are short and self-paced. Instructors may be interested in topics such as Literacy for Social Change, while students may benefit from courses such as Prepare for Tests, Working with Your Child’s Teacher and Marking Your Calendar. Other topics include reading comprehension, vocabulary, writing, math and citizenship. Registration is simple; just visit the ProLiteracy Education Network website.
