adult learners

Does your adult learner want to write better?

Is improving their writing one of your adult learner’s goals? Inspiration 8, an award-winning visual thinking software, is available to you and your learner on all literacy computers! You can easily create visual diagrams to help develop and organize ideas. Add clip art to help enforce the ideas and attach notes for deeper planning and understanding.

Start with the “Learn to Use” training section or just jump in! The familiar interface, similar to Microsoft Word, makes it easy.

Instant Poetry!

If your adult learner would like to work on poetry but needs some inspiration, click here. On the left they will see a list of poems; help them choose one and follow the directions, adding words when and where instructed. Click on “Create my ___ poem,” and voila, they'll have an instant poem! This site also gives you an example so you can see what yours will look like. Try it out; it’s a lot of fun! 

Be a Power Up! Volunteer

Hey tutors!

Have some free time on your hands and want to help integrate new literacy students to the program? We need volunteers to assist us with our 2 hour orientation sessions for incoming students in which we discuss how the program works, what the expectations are of both students and their prospective tutors, and goal setting strategies in detail. 
 
If you think you might be interested in becoming a Power Up! volunteer, please call the Literacy Office at 918-549-7400.
