Tutor Tip of the Month: Inspiring Participation

(Courtesy of Marin Literacy Program tutors)

  • Take a field trip to the market and explore nutritional labels and item markers.

  • When you are reading the newspaper, keep a list of recurring words that it would be useful for a learner to learn and integrate the words into your lessons.

  • Encourage your learner to bring questions from workplace and community experiences to discuss.

  • Find out what interests your learner and build lessons around it. One tutor and learner made a workbook about Egypt together using colored pens and Egyptian art. This not only builds skills, it also brings the joy of creation!
