The Clarkston area is home to over 60 languages. With this staggering linguistic diversity comes a large number of English Language Learners. As a result, there are several courses for adults throughout the area. The Adult & Literacy Network of Clarkston set out to share good practices of the different programs throughout the area.
The Adult & Literacy Network of Clarkston was born out of last fall’s Next Steps Session on Education where a group of individuals met to discuss adult literacy and education. The group has been meeting regularly, and earlier this year, the Network was formed. CDF’s Sumaya Karimi and Roberta Malavenda have been participating in the Network.
On Tuesday, July 23rd, 32 people attended the “Idea Swap” Workshop at the International Rescue Committee’s ESL Classroom. Participants brought copies of their favorite activity to share.
The Adult & Literacy Network of Clarkston hopes to continue the “Idea Swap” Workshops on a regular basis. Stay tuned for updates!
