Using Published Materials

Training and support for tutors and teachers working with basic literacy students, who want to use their published materials more effectively.

We’ve identified three areas of need when using published materials and have designed webinars to address each. We’ve designed these webinars to focus on common characteristics of published materials and generic strategies for adapting them. If you don’t have set of published materials you prefer, you may apply for a scholarship for a classroom set of New Readers Press basic literacy instructional materials.

Using Published Materials in an Open Entry/Exit Classroom
October 17, 2022, 3:00-4:00 pm EST
While open entry and exit classrooms are common in many Adult Education programs, most published materials aren't designed to accommodate them. In this workshop we will discuss some innovative ways to adapt published materials to effectively captivate and teach students who are entering and exiting consistently.

Registration for coaching sessions will be sent via email after the webinar.

Using Published Materials in a Virtual Instructional Setting
January 16, 2023, 1:00-2:00 pm EST
Virtual learning was not a pandemic fix - it is becoming the face of education. But, the virtual learning environment requires us to rethink how we use our traditional printed instructional materials. In this workshop we will learn about virtual pedagogy for Adult Education and discover techniques to teach students using published materials.

Registration for coaching sessions will be sent via email after the webinar.

Using Published Materials in a Multi-level Group or Class
April 19, 2023, 2:00-3:00 pm EST
Multi-level classrooms can be an awesome learning environment for everyone from the student to the instructor. However, many published materials are designed to take advantage of this great learning opportunity. In this workshop, participants will learn strategies that make the most of published materials in a multilevel environment.

Registration for coaching sessions will be sent via email after the webinar.
