U.S.A. Learns Online Classroom for Teachers

U.S.A. Learns is a great resource for teachers of beginning adult ELLs. An important part of literacy is being able to use technology to gain access to information. The module is user friendly and has instructions in English and Spanish. Use these recordings and readings in class, have students practice at their local library, or they can even use the site at home if they have a computer and the internet. It's great for extra practice. This is a free tool from the U.S. Department of Education (ED), Office of Vocational and Adult Education, Division of Adult Education and Literacy (DAEL).
