First Literacy supports Adult Basic Education(ABE) and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) in Massachusetts with free professional development workshops for educators, program administrators, coordinators, and counselors across the state.
The goal of these workshops is to strengthen ABE and ESOL programs by providing approaches and resources that participants may implement immediately and share with their colleagues. Most workshops consist of two three-hour sessions and are facilitated by First Literacy and local ABE/ESOL professionals.
We plan our professional development offerings based on formal survey data and are uniquely positioned to quickly respond to the interests and needs of adult basic education programs as they arise.
