The Olin Literacy Project

September '17 - Present

I co-run a program that creates content for, and runs, ESOL (English Second/Other Language) courses for custodial staff at Olin College. This program came into existence three years ago, under the direction of Olin's previous Dean of Student Affairs.

 

When he left Olin, two of us students who helped create the program took directive lead. We have recently undergone an expansion effort to ensure classes continue to run after we graduate.

Currently, we teach 30-minute classes twice a week, with content that includes vocabulary words, phrases, syntax, and semantics.
