Digital Recorders

Did you know that the Ruth G Hardman Literacy Service has digital voice recorders available for checkout? Tutors and learners can use these recorders in a variety of ways, including practicing pronunciation, reviewing previous lessons, exploring letter sounds, and recording life stories for later transcription. 

If you are a tutor or literacy student and you are interested in checking out one of our digital voice recorders, contact the Literacy Office at 549-7400. We can arrange to have the recorder sent to your local library for your use.

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.

It Isn't About Teaching Your Child to Read

It Isn't About Teaching Your Child to Read

Read my article in Tulsa Kids (November 2013) about the central message I take to parents around the county: that teaching your child to read is not as important as making your child a reader. The skills of reading aren't worth much if your child doesn't use them. What can parents do from your child's very first days to insure that they will be lifelong readers? The answers may be simpler than you think.
