Tutor Ready Resources: Learn More About How to Teach Writing
Date: Tuesday, September 29th
Time: 1:00pm - 2:30pm

Join California Library Literacy Services learners, tutors, and literacy program staff to celebrate and learn for National Literacy Month for the Tutor Ready Resources: Learn More About How to Teach Writing Workshop. This workshop is for tutors and program staff.

Writing with confidence can be a challenge! Teaching writing with confidence can also be pretty challenging! Join the Tutor Ready Team for this hands-on writing workshop, full of activities, resources and good times. We have created dozens of videos that feature real tutors and adult learners demonstrating writing strategies. The videos are based on recent writing research and show best practices in adult literacy teaching and learning. They’re also free, online, and pretty uplifting! Join us and get a preview of the Tutor Ready Writing videos, practice some teaching activities, and think about how you might use Tutor Ready in tutoring, or in augmenting your program’s pre and in-service tutor trainings.

We will be using Zoom for this networking call and you will receive the link prior to the conversation. You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meeting and you can participate either on your computer or on your phone. Depending on the technology you use, you will be prompted to download the software or app, once you have clicked on the link that that we will provide you prior to the meeting. You may also wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting.
