A View From My Window Two

Class W3 recently completed a writing project involving pictures and words. Here’s more from Class W3 teacher Lynne:

Since early this past spring 2020 when Covid-19 became a pandemic, we have all been shut inside for weeks and months, going out only occasionally to the grocery store or work, if we haven’t been laid off. Thus, we have spent much more time looking out our apartment windows, day after day. What we once took for granted, or maybe did not really “see”, we now observe things that were previously insignificant details. What have we seen? We took pictures of the view from our windows and shared our feelings of living in a Covid-19 world.

Summer’s Almost Gone!

Well, it’s been one heck of a summer here at the University Settlement Adult Literacy Program. We’ve wrapped up our summer electives classes, which included 5 different Conversation Clubs and a Culture Club – a mosaic of them can be seen above.

Now we’re in the thick of online registration for the 2020-21 school year and our classes are slowly filling up! We’re going to start online but once Mean Old Mr. Covid gets under control we’re going to resume in-person classes.

Albany!

Here are more photos from Albany. Our students went to the state capital last week with other members of the New York City Coalition for Adult Literacy (NYCCAL) to advocate for $25 million in funding for Adult Literacy Education in New York State. We held a rally on the Million Dollar staircase, where in addition to Senator Jessica Ramos and Assembly Members Ron Kim and Pat Fahy, our very own Adult Literacy Program students Lifen and Jose spoke about how important programs like ours are. After the rally we visited state assembly members’ and senators’ offices and to tell them why adult literacy programs need more funding in New York.
