Wrapping Up the Year
Another semester, and year, is wrapping up at Literacy Network. We asked a few LitNet teachers to share their thoughts on how the semester has gone.
"The Level 3 class I teach has been trying some new ideas from the Poetry Foundation, Poets.org, and The Academy of American Poets, and I'm working on
a collaborative class booklet with Catherine Viera, a professor of Second Language Acquisition at the UW, where we are hoping to use social media to practice different kinds of writing about students' wor
k experiences. An exciting session!"

"I love creating student-centered lessons with active learning and engaging content
that empowers students by preparing them well for using English outside the classroom. I feel so thankful watching and being a part of my students progress in class as they build skills that make a difference in their lives on a daily basis."
"It's been a joy to teach members of North Central Group's team! In October we used the language we practiced in class in a scavenger hunt in the Courtyard Hotel. The team members had to ask for directions to the ice machine, find where the pool hours are listed, and introduce themselves to the front desk manager!"
