Remote ESOL Case Study: Independent and Peer Learning – Literacy Pittsburgh

Literacy Pittsburgh (formerly Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council) has been recognized as a national leader in adult and family literacy since its incorporation in 1982. Literacy Pittsburgh is the largest provider of adult basic education in Allegheny and Beaver Counties. Last year, nearly 5,000 people were served by Literacy Pittsburgh’s programs. Over the years, offerings have expanded to meet the community’s broader learning needs — from GED preparation to English Language learning to digital literacy and workplace skills.

This case study features Literacy Pittsburgh remote ESOL program design during COVID and student onboarding and persistence supports. It also highlights teachers' approaches, digital learning and supports for children's basic needs, among others, while also providing indicators for effectiveness.
