Just a reminder that the Literacy Office requires that you take at least one continuing education class per year. While the Literacy Office offers plenty of opportunities throughout the year administered by our staff for tutors who are unable to attend traditional classes, online options are available. The Pro Literacy Network offers many self-paced, online courses for tutors at their website: http://www.proliteracyednet.org/articles.asp?mcid=2

What do I like about my life right now? Who challenges me and believes that I can do better? What do I need? What do I want?

Forming questions is often very difficult for English language learners. If you have a die (or a pair of dice), you can make a game of asking questions. Assign each number a question word; for example, one is who, two is what, three is where, four is when, five is why, and six is how. Roll the die, and your learner (and/or you) should ask a question using that word. The question and answer may also spark a very interesting conversation.
