A VALBEC (Victorian Adult Literacy and Basic Education Council) Professional Learning session presented by Helen Lucas.

Helen’s students are prisoners – In her presentation she will explain the structure and complexities of delivering CGEA literacy classes within a prison context.

Education in prison is called ‘Edjo’ and is voluntary. Helen will discuss the practicalities and complexities of teaching in this dynamic environment - engagement and retention, obstacles, content, assessment, student-based learning, etc.

Helen Lucas has been teaching adult literacy for over twenty years, primarily in community settings. She has been teaching literacy at Loddon Prison, a medium security Corrections facility for men in Castlemaine for three years.
She is also a writer; her work includes poetry, short stories, children's books, a play, and teaching resources. Alongside her teaching and writing, Helen convened a monthly poetry reading for the Shire of Nillumbik for seventeen years.

We look forward to seeing you there.
