33rd Annual New York City Adult Basic Education Conference: "Innovating and Connecting in Adult Literacy," SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 2012, at Fashion Industries High School, New York City, NY.

The Planning Committee for the 33rd annual New York City Adult Basic Education Conference is issuing a call to adult educators and learners who are interested in presenting at the 2012 Conference. The CRW will participate by compiling lessons BY tutors, FOR tutors! In a cohesive presentation, the CRW will show participants of the conference how you, the volunteer tutors of NYPL, are using your knowledge, sensitivity, and experience to create outstanding lessons and help adults learn to read and write.

We will prepare for our presentation in stages. All interested tutors are encouraged to participate in any way, big or small! Don't worry, your contribution can be totally behind the scenes and even anonymous, or you can be front and center. Whatever you are comfortable with.

STEP ONE: Get together informally to share our lessons and classroom ideas with one another. You can attend this get-together purely to get classroom further commitment is required.

Look for a new post to "Updates to the HUB" about this Lesson-Sharing Bonanza! Email Danica Draper at for more information.
