The objectives of the classes are to develop basic, common-sense skills for daily living, improve English competence, and engage students who are currently wait-listed for LCMC’s tutoring program. Classes would cover common must-know skills for daily life in the US , across topic areas such as: health, school, home/hearth, transportation, safety, finances, shopping, and work.
Volunteers should have the following qualifications: (1) experience working with adult learners; (2) experience teaching ESOL; (3) experience in course content development and (4) classroom teaching experience.
The role of the Curriculum Reviewers would be to review and provide input on course material under development and recommend work books and/or other texts to be used in class.
The role of the Teachers would be to lead and/or associate to conduct classes and teach 1-2 hours of classes per week for 8 to 10 weeks.
