Literacy Pre-Conference

Two great workshops to help strengthen literacy services at your library

If you have already registered for CLA, you may add the preconference to your existing conference registration

by calling or emailing Lauren in the CLA office: / 626-239-1776.

Successful learning environments for adult learners
Learning is ongoing–an everyday process. In addition to one-to-one volunteer tutoring, some library literacy programs hold small group sessions with larger classes and online tutoring. How do you determine the “best” approach for each learner? How will you know when it’s time to move to another group or try another type of learning situation? And, how do you graduate someone from your program? A panel of literacy program experts, facilitated by Diane Moseley, Literacy Coordinator at the Huntington Beach Public Library, will lead an in-depth discussion.


Exploring GED vs. HiSET and other High School Equivalency Options

Which Test is Right for your Learners?
There is currently a lot of confusion about the HiSET exam, TASC, Career Online High School and the GED. It would be natural to think that since these options have the same outcome—receiving a high school equivalency credential—that the content of each would be relatively similar or equivalent. But is that true? Are they all accepted equally by colleges? By employers? Cherall Weiss, Literacy Coordinator for the Newport Beach Public Library will lead a panel discussion to explore the differences in these options and how to decide which one is right for your learners.

Thursday, November 5 | 1:15pm-4:15pm
