WHAT IS LITERACY?

Literacy is about more than being able to read. The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 suggests a broader view of literacy as "an individual's ability to read, write, speak in English, compute and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job, in the family of the individual and in society."

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

"Let's Talk!": "Let's Talk!" is an informal English conversation class, where participants are encouraged to discuss topics of the day. Members also engage in guided discussion exercises. This class is a fun way for non-native English speakers of ALL levels to practice their English skills in a comfortable, supportive atmosphere.

Adult Basic Education/High School Completion: This class is designed for dedicated students who are determined to make getting their GED/TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) a top priority in their life. This class meets in the Community Education classroom at the Noblesville Library.
