Goals Workshop at Schusterman-Benson Library

tutor and learner

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?

Do any of these questions perk your interest?  We will explore these questions and more in the next Goals Workshop on Saturday, September 14th from 10:15 a.m. -1:00 p.m. at Schusterman-Benson Library. This workshop is for adult learners and their tutors and provides an opportunity to learn something about yourself. This is not your ordinary goals-setting type of experience. Please call to reserve your spot: 918-549-7400.

Roll the Dice!

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.
