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.

Literacy Workshop: Conflict and Communications: Making It Work

Conflict and Communication: Making it Work

In this new class, we will study the Assertive Bill of Rights and learn how to react in difficult situations, and about standing up for ourselves while avoiding unnecessary conflict. Literacy Specialist Cleo Berninger will facilitate this workshop for tutors and their adult learners. 
 

 

Where: Zarrow Regional Library (2224 W. 51st Street)

When: Wednesday, November 13th, 6:00 p.m.—8:30 p.m.

Please call the literacy office at 918-549-7400 to RSVP.

Introducing our new ESL Specialist!

We are happy to introduce our new ESL Specialist, Jennifer Lockhart! Jennifer has recently joined the Literacy team, and we are very excited she is here. We asked her to introduce herself:

New Location for Literacy

A few folks have already popped by to check out our new digs, and we want to encourage to all of our tutors, students, and various volunteers to stop by our new building now that we’re open! We have moved and our materials collection is all set up and ready to be browsed! We also have a self-check machine available for those who want to check out any literacy items while they’re here.
