Welcome to Write Away the brand new
writing forum for Project Read learners!

We've redesigned our blog so that adult learners working at Project Read can share what they have written with other learners, tutors, and the public. There are a few simple guidelines to be aware of.
  1. This is a moderated site, so submissions and comments will first be reviewed before being approved and published.
  2. Adult learners submitting their writing have the option of using their first name (only) or using "anonymous" for authorship.
  3. We wish to honor the writing efforts of the adult learner/authors, so no major copy editing will be applied, but we may suggest minor corrections in consultation with the author.
  4. Only active Project Read learners are eligible to submit their writing to the Write Away blog and there are two ways of doing this: send submissions via email to projectread@sfpl.org, or stop by the office with a hard copy of your writing.
  5. The views and opinions expressed on this web site are solely those of the original authors and contributors. These views and opinions do not represent those of the San Francisco Public Library and/or the City and County of San Francisco.

Continuing Education Class for Tutors - October 23


Reading for Meaning

Understanding what we read is really the whole point of reading. Yet, practicing comprehension can sometimes be the most challenging aspect of literacy tutoring. In this workshop we will take a look at research that shows what reading for meaning entails. Then, we will practice all sorts of comprehension-boosting tutoring strategies you can use with your student. And, we'll have a good time in the process!

Presented by Amy Prevedel, literacy professional and former coordinator of Berkeley Reads.
