We are chugging away here! Many of our students are getting more acclimated to online learning. What works better for you? Synchronous vs Asynchronous learning?
We have been experimenting and using so many platforms to help our students virtually. Each student, each tutor, and each instructor had to adapt. We used Zoom. Teams. Facebook Video. and Google Classrooms.
Which is your favorite?
We, at Literacy For All, Inc., are heartbroken to hear that one of our first students and first college graduates, Dosha Joi, passed away from complications from COVID - 19. He worked to earn his bachelor's degree from Milwaukee Springfield College.

Transitioning your child or children to a home school environment can be stressful.
So tell us what you are doing? Art projects? Writing? English?
How do you like being teachers?
We are all facing unusual circumstances. We have suspended face-to-face meetings because we care about everyone's health and safety.
While most of our students are taking online classes, we have worked with our students in learning more online tools and technology to help with this transition.

What does this mean?
I know a lot of us struggle with math in school. Just because we may have struggled in it in school, is it easier to learn high level math (algebra or geometry) as an adult? How can we learn math as an adult?

We are thrilled to be partnering with Challenge Island Waukesha - Milwaukee in Redefining, Reshaping and Rethinking Literacy! The did a sample Corporate STEAM building activity at our networking group.
They come right to the business and do a 90-minute, 2 hour workshop for employees.
Business owner Andrea Davis: "The workshops incorporate teamwork, collaboration, and our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities. It's a fun workshop that lets adults use creativity and imagination to complete the activities we give them. It helps them to think outside the box and to see their coworkers in a different light that they may not see during the normal course of the work day."
What is awesome is for every corporate workshop booked, they provide a free children's workshop.
"So it is a win-win!" said Davis.
For more information, message Challenge Island Waukesha - Milwaukee or message Literacy For All.
They also do a plethora of other workshops and events!
Maybe this is late, but we just found out. We used to tutor here before we had our office!

We heard that speaking in bad grammar is a turn off for a first date. If someone said, "Where we going?" would that be a turn off? What do you think?
Let's keep Waukesha in our thoughts.

What do you think about the Oxford comma?
For Literacy For All, our mission is about Redefining, Reshaping and Rethinking Literacy or should it be Redefining, Reshaping, and Rethinking Literacy!
The way we say it is when we put our information on our website, Facebook or in press releases, we use Associated Press (AP) so we do not use the third comma.
But when we write grants, we used American Psychological Association (APA) which has the third comma.
Are we right? What do you think?
This settles the Oxford comma debate! Except...it goes against AP style. Here's an overview of how the serial comma works and why it's important for clarity.
