(Across from Boston Common)

This workshop will focus on the picture book as engaging text for adult ESOL students and as a pathway to promote family literacy. Participants will read selected stories and try a variety of related art, writing, and vocabulary building activities appropriate for the adult ESOL class. The presenter will discuss ways in which these books, hands-on materials, and literacy experiences can be used to teach all levels of English language learners. A commitment to attend both sessions is asked of all participants.

Alicia Hsu teaches ESOL to immigrant parents whose children attend the Brookline Public Schools. She has an MA in Children’s Literature and is passionate about story telling as a vehicle for learning and community building.


We look forward to seeing you then!
