There will be a Volunteer Literacy Tutor training, Saturday, July 16 at Clatsop Community College.
The training will be held in Columbia Hall, room 219 from 11:00-1:00 pm. The focus of the training will be a presentation of a toolbox of strategies for tutors working with ESL and other students of English. The training will be provided by Andreina Velasco, a native Spanish speaker who graduated from Reed College and now works as a Spanish Immersion teacher in Portland and Beaverton public schools. She has a Masters in Education with an ESOL endorsement. She also has worked with Adelante Mujeres, a nonprofit based in Forest Grove, whose mission is the holistic education and empowerment of low-income Latina women and their families. There she taught leadership development using popular education techniques. During her work as a Migrant Education recruiter for the NWRESD, she continued this work with Latina women here on the North Coast. Participants will have an opportunity to role play, observe an authentic literacy tutoring session and have a chance to examine new texts and study materials. To reserve a spot, please call 503-338-2557 or email Eileen Purcell. This training will assist working tutors and provide new volunteers with valuable techniques to help students. All are welcome and participants are not obligated to volunteer.
