I was thrilled when the transcendent, luminous, extraordinary short story writer Alice Munro won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature earlier this month. Not only is Munro being recognized for her exceptional achievement in this often-belittled (certainly misunderstood) literary form, which is a win for all short-story readers the world over, but she is a woman, and women writers have only received Nobel love 12 times before Munro. (She is the lucky 13th.)

Changes in the GED

Did you know the GED will be changing in January 2014? A new test will be offered that has been updated to reflect what students are learning in high school. The new test will only be available to take via a computer. 

The Literacy Office will be updating all our GED preparation materials, and several staff members have received training on the new GED, so please feel free to contact us with questions.

More information on the new test, and how it differs from the old test, can be found here.
