As I mentioned earlier I am currently involved in a GED training course sponsored by the Minnesota Literacy Council, and it has been one of the best and most interesting trainings that I've ever had. Every lesson has had a good blend of lecture and class involvement time and has had an air of Prussian efficiency, if such a thing exists anymore. No time is wasted, everything goes according to schedule, and the teacher is awesome.

One of my favorite activities that we did in class was the Trogs lesson. The point of it is to get the tutors to understand what it's like to read English poorly, and it does its job very effectively. Since it was so fun, I decided to copy it over onto the blog and have you all try it. If the pic is too small, just click on it for the fully blown up version. Have fun!

Until next time...
