Making It Work: Adapting Materials 101
Cost: There is no fee for this training, but your tax-deductible donation will support our tutor training program and literacy learners across Minnesota!
Description: The transition to remote tutoring offers a variety of rewards and challenges. In this workshop, learn recommendations for adapting materials designed for in-person instruction into a remote teaching format (WhatsApp will be modeled for one-to-one tutoring, Zoom will be modeled for small group instruction). The presenter will demonstrate approaches for introducing reading, writing, and vocabulary on a phone or computer, and will model adaptations for common ESL classroom activities. Participants will receive a handout that includes recommendations for building in class routines, an adapted lesson planning template, and activity instructions.
This is a recorded webinar that can be viewed asynchronously, with an accompanying reflection guide which can be submitted for attendance credits that count towards the Foundations of Remote Instruction certificate and generate CEUs.
