September 6, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM – A Roadmap to Success: How to Plan Effective Lessons

Whether you’re tutoring one-on-one or teaching a large class, lesson planning is a critical part of ensuring learner success. During this workshop, you’ll learn how to design lessons so that both the teacher and learners experience success.

Topics include: how to write effective objectives to guide your planning, tried and true planning methods and lesson plan formats, and how to build in comprehension checks throughout the lesson. New and experienced teachers alike are welcome.

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.



September 7, 2019, 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.
