Professional Development for Teaching Adult Emergent Readers
Martha Bigelow and Patsy Vinogradov, University of Minnesota

This workshop will outline for teacher educators some of the most important, research-based characteristics of adult language learners who are becoming literate for the first time. We will share useful materials, model a few core teaching strategies and discuss program model issues that will help teachers serve this unique population. Participants are encouraged to bring their own reading lists, materials, and questions to the workshop.
