Helping Businesses Identify Low Literacy

Hi all - My name's Chad Patton with the Literacy Center of West Michigan. I direct a program called Customized Workplace English that provides business ESL and Literacy instruction within a business during times that work well for their employees. We've very well providing contextualized instruction to English Language Learners because they self-identify as having a need for ESL. We have, however, had a harder time recruiting native speakers of English for literacy instruction.

OER supports Instructors and enables students

Good afternoon everyone,

The semester started this week, and I'm teaching a new class this year. So I'm still trying to learn before I teach. Not that it's an excuse, but it's a good reason why I haven't taken the time to get back to OER commons.

Hello colleagues,

At our state Adult Basic Education conference last week, this brief talk (among others!) was given by a local ABE manager.  The speaker, Jodi Versaw, was responding to the question, "Why Does ABE Matter?"  If you teach ESL, you'll enjoy this eloquent affirmation of our work.
