Our latest EnglishAgenda webinar recording, looks at how to help adult learners become storytellers and published authors.

Judy Kirsh, Teacher educator and ESOL/Literacy specialist, explored the process of supporting migrant women and volunteer befrienders to become published authors. Judy and colleagues presented on behalf of Learning Unlimited, winner of the 2016 British Council ELTon award for Innovation in learner resources.

Women on the Active Citizenship and English (ACE) project wrote about their own funny, personal and less typical experiences of everyday life in the UK. Their stories were then edited and published as graded ESOL literacy readers with two versions of each story (Entry 1/A1 and Entry 2/A2) along with supporting key words, comprehension and discussion questions, illustrations, and additional free downloadable activities. This popular series is a concrete example of the impact of participatory approaches to teaching and learning and supporting integration.
