English for Life and Work-Mon/Wed

Free

with Emily Nash, Ellsworth Adult Education

Calendar Jan 6, 2020 at 12:30 pm, runs for 22 weeks

This is a self-paced course which can be taken for diploma credit, designed to help adults improve their writing and reading while preparing for college entrance exams, college classes, and the world of work. We will cover the basics of grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure, paragraph development, and will eventually write effective essays with clear ideas, smooth transitions, and logical support. We will practice pre-writing, planning, research, and organizing our writing. Learning to proofread for punctuation, usage, content and support will be emphasized. An aspect of the practice will be reading diverse materials and analyzing them for main ideas, supporting evidence, and the proper use of the mechanics of English, all while increasing digital literacy. Ongoing enrollment.

Please contact Ellsworth Adult Education at 664-7110 or adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org to make an appointment with our student advisor before registering for this class.

Math for College & Work Tue/Thu

Free

with Vanessa Richards, Ellsworth Adult Education

Calendar Jan 7, 2020 at 10:30 am, runs for 20 weeks

If you don't use it, you lose it! This is most notably true about math. Most of us read and write almost every day, but how many of us find the common denominator of fractions regularly enough to make it stick in our brains? Work with our math teacher to change your perspective on math, eliminate your negative feelings and anxiety, and receive direct and targeted instruction. You'll use technology to practice the skills you learn directly from your teacher and other learning resources. Vanessa Richards has 19 years of experience teaching all levels of math, and has been dubbed the "Math Therapist." Upon successful completion of this course, students will earn one high school diploma credit (if needed).

Please contact Ellsworth Adult Education at 664-7110 or adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org to make an appointment with our student advisor before registering for this class.
