The Adult Learning Centers (ALCs) are the direct service providers of ESOL and adult literacy instruction for the Library. They use professional teachers to offer free instruction to adult patrons in reading, writing, speaking and listening from a 0 to 8th grade level. Through formal classes in language and literacy, as well as elective offerings such as English conversation and citizenship preparation groups, ALCs have taken on the charge to expand ESOL instruction in the Library.
This position will lead ESOL classes to adult patrons in classes which meet 4-6 hours per week. The instructor will develop and implement lesson plans in alignment with NYPL’s ESOL curriculum, and report student attendance data in a timely manner. Instructors may also support new student registration, and end of cycle post testing.
