March Adult Learner Book Club Selection

The March book club selection is Call Me Francis Tucket. This second book in a popular series by Gary Paulsen (a favorite author of Literacy book club!) is another action-packed Western  with galloping horses and one friendly old mule. There are also shooting rifles, heroes, scoundrels, some lost children,  (maybe a few wolves here and there) and prairie ethics.  Gary Paulsen is a Newberry Honor award winning master storyteller whose stories often appeal to reluctant readers.

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.
