THE GREAT AMERICAN TEACH-IN

Adult learners from the Dunedin Elementary School ESL Conversation Class participated in the Great American Teach-In on November 14.  The learners were parents of students at the school, and they and their teachers read bilingual books in English and Spanish to kindergarten students at the school.

USCIS TRAINING FOR LCUP VOLUNTEERS

Volunteers from the Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas attended a training seminar for adult educators, directors, volunteers, and representatives from immigrant-serving organizations.  The seminar was offered by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, on September 13, 2018, in Tampa.

Instruction was designed to enhance the skills needed to teach U.S. history, civics, and the naturalization process to immigrant students and to administer a comprehensive adult citizenship education program.

Conversation Class at Dunedin Public Library

Students in the Dunedin Library Conversation Class enjoy finding partners to put together three phrases to make complete sentences. The students then created their own sentences using the phrases from the game.

 

Happy English learners proudly display the sentences they have created from individual phrases.

Conversation Classes Resume at New Clearwater East Community Library

On April 30, English conversation classes resumed in their new meeting space at Clearwater East Community Library at St. Petersburg College.  The library is located at 2465 Drew Street in Clearwater, and classes meet on Mondays from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.

Classes had been on hiatus since mid-February, so it was a warm reunion for students and tutors and a welcoming event for newcomers.  The class is led by tutors, Jan Demers (back left) and Robin Pitchford (front right).  Tutors are welcome to visit any class.  We have many students who are eager to work, one-on-one or in a small group, with an LCUP English tutor.
