The Fall 2012 issue of Notebook: Resources for the Adult Educator, is here! Notebook is a 16-page resource designed especially for teachers and tutors. It is published three times per year as a benefit for ProLiteracy members. Each article in Notebook describes a ready-to-use teaching idea related to reading, writing, listening and speaking, numeracy, or a practical application of literacy skills such as making a budget.
This is a quick activity which can be used as a warm-up or as a quick break between two other longer activities.
