This workshop is about a simple and replicable method for ESOL teachers who would like to bring music to their classrooms.  It is based on a collaboration between Rosie’s Place Women’s Education Center and Berklee College of Music. Participants will learn about our model, method and the theory behind it, will come up with a song in groups and will have time to reflect on how this could be adjusted for their own settings. No musical training is necessary.

Space is limited, so register early!

Sara Jorgensen is Director of the Women’s Education Center at Rosie’s Place and brings over thirty years of experience in adult education in New York City and Boston to her position overseeing up to 150 teachers and over 300 students each year. Some of the projects she is most proud of include the development of an ESOL for Human Services Jobs Training Program, A Career Café, and The Writing Café. She is excited about collaborations with agencies to connect arts, enrichment, higher education or job training to the Women’s Education Center and to all underserved people looking for an opportunity to go back to school, get a job or to try something new.

We look forward to seeing you then!
