New Items for Literacy Students and Tutors!

The Literacy Office has both new materials and more copies of popular items! Here are some of the materials we have received recently:

Join the (written) World of Connection

If you have ever received a letter in the mail or a nice holiday greeting you know how nice it feels.

To many people it could be an intimidating prospect to write a letter, send a greeting card or address an envelope. Tutors, this might be a good thing to go over with your adult learner and offer your assistance. The winter holiday season provides the perfect setting to connect with people far (or near) through written communication.

It’s always a good time to write to someone and it does not need to be complicated. To whom will you write?

El Dia de Los Muertos and Halloween

October is almost over, and that means that two holidays are coming up. Halloween, on October 31st, probably springs to mind first for most Americans, but the festival of El Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, will also take place over the upcoming weekend.  While those unfamiliar with the Day of the Dead may confuse it with Halloween, regarding both holidays as "spooky," actually the holidays are quite different, although they share some of the same roots in harvest festivals and the Catholic Church. Interested in learning more about Halloween and El Dia de los Muertos?
