ProLiteracy’s Teacher Training Plus is Back

Last year, ProLiteracy’s Teacher Training Plus was popular with instructors looking for new strategies and one-on-one guidance on basic literacy, English language learning, and HSE. The project has returned with new webinars in the same subject areas available this fall through next spring. Each webinar is followed with just-in-time small group coaching sessions to help tutors implement strategies.

Visit ProLiteracy’s website to see the courses offered and to register.

This year’s classes include two levels for ESL tutors — courses for those working with low-level English language learners and courses for those working with high-level ESL students. Courses include “Where do I Start? Planning the First Month of Lessons with a Low-Level ELL Student.” and “Starting from Scratch: Working with Low-level ELL Students with Little-to-no First Language Literacy.”

ProLiteracy on YouTube

If you miss the scheduled dates for a webinar, it will later be posted on ProLiteracy’s YouTube Channel where you can watch it at your convenience. The YouTube Channel offers videos in all subject areas.
