Starting on Saturday we will begin student orientation and classes – online! Click on the links below to go to the info you’ll need as a new student at the University Settlement Adult Literacy Program:
We just wrapped up two days of teacher orientation, and there’s proof of it in the screenshot above. We have four new teachers and the rest of them are returning teachers. Our class offerings this year include 12 daytime classes, 5 evening classes, 3 weekend classes plus 2 elective classes. In our orientation we talked about Zoom, Google Classroom, Ventures Presentation Plus, classroom management, lesson planning, and a whole host of other things! I think I speak for all of us when I say that it was both fun and informative.
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.
