Giving adults the gift of Language and Literacy


LitNet Gala 2015

LitNet's 2015 Gala will take place on Saturday, September 19 at the newly renovated Eastover Resort in Lenox. Our Founder of America honoree will be Perri Petricca, CEO of Petricca Industries in Pittsfield. His grandfather, Basilio Petricca, came to the United States in 1910, moved to Pittsfield four years later and eventually founded what has become one of the largest construction companies in Western Massachusetts, employing more than 500 people.

LitNet New Tutor Training Spring 2015

The Literacy Network of South Berkshire is pleased to announce tutor training sessions for the spring.  LitNet offers free, one-on-one tutoring for adults needing help in math, basic reading skills, preparing for the GED, and learning English as a second language. Tutors don't need prior teaching experience or knowledge of a foreign language, but they must be eighteen or older.  All training sessions are free.
The first training session will be held on Monday, May 4th, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the BCC South Campus in Great Barrington, 343 Main Street.  It will include an overview of LitNet and discussion of general principles of teaching adult learners.  The second session, on May 6th at the same time and place, will focus on theory and specific strategies for teaching English as a second language at the beginning and intermediate levels.  This training includes experiential learning activities, pair and group work.  The commitment is to teach one to one-and- a-half hours a week.
