Sorry not to have been posting for a while. The good news is that we’ve been silent because we’ve been busy. Charlotte, Candace, and Will, one of our volunteer tutors for GED and family literacy, all attended their first Adult Basic Education Institute this week, organized by the Literacy Action Network here in Minnesota. Several Summer Institute veterans from Southwest Adult Basic Education were in attendance, and some were presenting. We look forward to sharing with tutors and learners our experiences at this meeting. Will and Candace attended pre-conference workshops on the upcoming GED 2014. We will be changing some aspects of tutor training related to the GED to enhance our ability to support adult learners who will be taking this new version.
