• Each workshop prepares new tutors to work with basic literacy or ESL students.
  • Workshop topics include:
    • Foundational information on adult learning theories or second language acquisition
    • Lesson planning
    • Assessment, evaluation, and goal setting
    • Current best practices in instructional principles, strategies, techniques, and activities for literacy and ESL students at all levels
  • The same workshop content is available in both a face-to-face workshop or an online course. This allows programs to continue offering their entire tutor training in person, through a blended learning format, or entirely online.
  • The workshop content features a modular design so programs can organize the content in a way that best meets their needs.
  • The face-to-face materials feature PowerPoint slides, trainer notes, and handout masters that are delivered to programs digitally. This makes it easy for programs to adapt the materials to reflect the local characteristics of their program and community.
  • The courses are not dependent on a specific set of instructional materials. The training approach focuses on teaching tutors how to organize their instructional time with students (a lesson plan) and then provides tutors with instructional techniques and activities to fill that time.¬†
