Part 1: January 24, 2020, 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM – Strategies for Teaching Multilevel Classes  

It can be challenging to teach a class with students of varying abilities, yet nearly all adult ESL classes are multilevel in some way. Join our next workshop for ESL instructors and volunteers and gain strategies and activities for engaging all learners in a mixed-ability class.

Dinner will not be provided, only light snacks, so plan accordingly. WDMCS Learning Resource Center is an environmentally-conscious campus, and you are encouraged to bring your own refillable water bottle.

Part 2: January 25, 2020, 8:00 AM – 1:30 PM – Essential Basics for Teaching Adult ESL Learners

Do you know how culture and immigration influence adult English learning? This session prepares volunteer instructors through these questions to help lead adult English language learners in language acquisition, citizenship, or job skills. New volunteers, those with limited ESL volunteer experience, and those interested in skill-development are welcome. Created for volunteers in community-based organizations, this workshop does not teach a specific curriculum, but will provide curriculum resources, activity ideas and sample lesson plans.

Breakfast and a light snack lunch will be provided. WDMCS Learning Resource Center is an environmentally-conscious campus, and you are encouraged to bring your own refillable water bottle.
