October 10, 2006 Teaching Writing to Reluctant Writers:    This presentation will provide the participants with techniques that the presenter has found helpful in teaching writing skills to adults who have poor written language skills.  The focus of this presentation is techniques for helping adult learners understand the structure of language, expressing ideas, and techniques for motivating writing activities.  Participants will experiment with the various techniques in an interactive workshop that helps learners to develop their ideas and organize their thoughts.  Strategies for motivating reluctant writers to write more will also be discussed.

 Motivating Reluctant Readers:    Adult learners who possess poor reading skills do not read much so their skills obviously remain underdeveloped.  In this training the presenter will demonstrate techniques he uses to motivate reluctant readers to read more and to increase their basic reading skills.  Besides using high interest reading material, the students are motivated by setting concrete goals and measuring success using alternative language acquisition techniques that use their strengths and avoiding identified weaknesses.  

Memory Techniques and Structured Learning: Many adult students who have learning or attention problems manifest poor organizational skills and often report that they have difficulty remembering what they have learned.  In this presentation participants learn how to make and use easy-to-remember patterns, mnemonics and memory clues for helping individuals who have learning problems.   These memory techniques alone usually donít enable adult students to learn effectively.  The presenter will provide participants with ways to enable students to structure their learning so that they can study effectively and efficiently.  Participants will have an opportunity to experiment with the techniques and receive handouts that they can use with their students to structure learning.   Adult Education,  Atlanta, Georgia  10:00 to 5:00
