ADULT EDUCATION

Adult Basic Education
ESOL
GED prep and ABE
This was National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week.  This is a time to raise awareness about the need for and value of adult education and family literacy.  Every day, we serve students who have the need to work on reading, language and math skills.  All of our adult education programs, including ABE, GED, and ESOL, celebrated literacy with several lessons, and we had a little fun at the same time.

We started off with math literacy.  Mrs. Girard read a story, “Math Curse” that demonstrates how there are math word problems that we deal with every day.  After the story, students were challenged with making up their own word problems.  Each group had to write out the word problem, draw a picture of it, share it with the other groups, and then everyone tried to solve it.  Everyone worked well together and came up with some great word problems!

Next, Mrs. Netherton read a story by one of her favorite authors, Dr. Seuss.  She read “The Sneetches,” a story about how star-bellied sneetches thought they were better than plain-bellied sneetches, and in the end they found that they weren’t so different at all.  Dr. Seuss wrote this to teach children about discrimination.  Though, it has many lessons for all ages.

Finally, Adult Education students embarked on a “figurative language scavenger hunt.”  Published authors, Colleen Avelli and Laura Ross, assembled a collection of poems and text and had students work in groups to identify and explain poetic terms and meanings. Each group worked collaboratively and moved from station to station every 5 minutes. The activity included bonus questions and prizes!  Even a song video was played to incorporate figurative language in music.  Here, student were given 5 extra bonus points if they danced…we have some smooth dancers in ESOL and ABE.  Hats off to all students who poured diligently over the texts to answer questions and unearth meanings.  It was a wonderful experience for our students.  They built needed skills for daily communication interaction as well as tackling a highly-stressed skill on both the TABE and GED tests.
