This time of year is one of my favorites. The cooler temperatures, the boots, and sweaters get to come out of the closet, and Halloween and Thanksgiving are two of my favorite holidays. My other favorite thing is the fall festival. It’s big here in Evansville. But no festival is happening this year, so I created a Fall Festival of Topics Thursdays. It has nothing to do with food, but it will be fun! Each Thursday at 10:30 am EDT; we have Fall Topics. On the first Thursday, I provided you three things you need to know. This is the recap:
1. Move Ahead Toolkit by COABE The purpose of the campaign toolkit is to provide outreach materials and language to help adult education organizations with proactive tools to communicate the value of adult education and how they can support adult learners during the COVID-19 pandemic. Click here for more information.
2. Pathways to Success Program with member Sara Gutting. Sara is teaming up with Jeff Fantine to offering a virtual seminar series that starts later this month. It includes various topics and CEUs are available. I’ve included the details here.
3. It is National Teachers Week this week, and I love to share ways that Teachers are being celebrated. For instance, Wakelet has teamed up with Adobe and offering a chance to win $500 of Classroom supplies; that is your wish list! See the details by clicking here.
Fall Festival Topic Thursday line up for October:
This Thursday, October 8th, the audience chooses the topic. I’ll let the first one that joins the Zoom pick the first topic, and we will get in as many as we can until the hour is up.
Thursday, Oct. 15th, the topic is Halloween in your lesson planning. Engaging Adult Learners with a Holiday? I’ll have some suggestions for you.
Thursday, Oct. 22nd #HSE vs. #GED the marketing, the Search Engine Optimization, and or the exams themselves, we will get it all in.
Thursday, Oct. 29th, What are you doing? I’m hoping to have a guest host; if you are interested, please email me. If I don’t get a guest host, we will talk about Halloween and how you are celebrating it. Costumes are encouraged but not required.
I hope to see you on Zoom on a Thursday this month and Happy Teachers Week!
