READ/San Diego Tutor Conference

June 12, 2010 at the Joan Kroc Institute of Peace and Justice, UC San Diego

Workshop 2: English Language Skills for Parents and Child Care Providers

2.5 hours

This workshop will provide participants with answers to the linguistic and pedagogical needs of adults raising children or working with children as child care teachers, pre-school aides, nannies, au-pairs, and babysitters. This session is designed to help organizations and individuals provide English language training and tutoring specifically for parents and child care providers. You'll come away with examples of engaging activities highlighting language patterns in authentic contexts. Attention will be given to vocabulary, reading, grammar, listening, speaking, and writing, along with aspects of American culture. Readings on health, safety, injuries, and the development and care of infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children will be informative. You'll experience new approaches to nursery rhymes, songs, games, and pair practice to support reading, rhythm, and writing. Through participation in innovative activities, you'll leave with new perspectives on fostering family literacy and communication with children, parents and teachers.
