Volunteer Literacy Tutor Training - Adult Basic and English as a Second Language will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Faulkner County Library (1900 Tyler St.), Meeting Room 2.
This combined English as a Second Language (ESL) and Adult Basic Literacy (ABL) Tutor Training Workshop will prepare you to teach adults to read. The workshop will include an orientation to Literacy Action’s mission and to the ways we are working to solve adult literacy problems in Central Arkansas. Trainers, Dr. Mary Mosley and Kelly Bullington, will provide information on working with adult literacy students, as well as tutoring techniques for ESL and ABL students. Other topics of discussion include lesson planning and documentation. Each student has been assessed to determine their reading level, and we will assist tutors in choosing the appropriate materials for their student. Lunch will be provided.
