Certified Nursing Assistant Test Preparation

This class will get you ready to take the CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) Test to receive a CNA License.  We will reveiw information from the official CNA Licensing test.  The class will give you a nursing background and make you more confident to pursue a Nursing career.

This class is designed for immigrants who are not native English speakers, and who may need extra time and review for the Nursing program.  That being said, anyone is welcome to join.  It is just a slower paced class with more time for questions.  It is an ongoing class and you may join anytime.  You may also re-take the class as many times as you wish.

We will also talk about test taking stradegies, reveiw difficult english and latin words, and also review tricky grammar.

At the end of the class, I will give a test.  If you pass the test, you will receive a certificate of completion of the class.  To be clear, you cannot receive a CNA license from me, but the certificate I give will show you have had some training.

The class is every Saturday, 9:30am-12pm.

Please give me a call if you are interested in joining the class.  I do not use e-mail or computers, so you must call to join the class.

Introduction to Research and Statistics

This on-line course consists of a set of self-paced resources supplemented with an on-line discussion space. The course provides a simple introduction to the nature of natural (i.e., anything NOT made by humans) and synthetic (i.e., anything created by humans) knowledge and how we learn about each. Then, the modules discuss how logic, the scientific method, and statistics mesh to provide us with fairly powerful "ways of knowing and learning" about both natural and synthetic knowledge systems.

Finally, folks will be introduced to a rubric for critically analyzing any research report or topic of their choice. This can be used for academic purposes (i.e., help you in school - any level of school) or for simply personal reasons.

Each of the three modules that will be ready for use, consists of audio-annotated slide shows, links to videos or other web resources, and on-line self-tests. In addition, a google group discussion space will provide a platform for module-specific threaded discussion space. A rough draft of the modules we will cover in this course (i.e., modules 1, 2, 3) are located at http://esdi.us/stats

For eighteen years serving as the Director of the Community Stabilization Project, Caty organized in the metropolitan area developing public policy and organizing campaigns around the issues of affordable housing and race.

Finding Your Voice Online

"Carrie Daklin is mad as hell and doesn't want to take it anymore," begins a column by Ruben Rosario. Want to keep reading? You bet. That's because Rosario always writes with voice, with attitude, with a passion that grabs the reader. Journalism prof Carrie Brown-Smith writes: "Voice doesn’t HAVE TO mean less facts or more ill-informed ranting ... there’s still hard-hitting reporting, but the person behind the story isn’t completely hidden. If anything, the biases they are trying (often to little avail) to hide are instead transparently represented to the audience and become part and parcel of their expertise rather than a liability." If you want to work on livening up your writing, join us for Finding Your Voice, a two-hour workshop at the Daily Planet office on January 11, 7-9 p.m. Register ahead of time, and e-mail instructor Mary Turck ([email protected]) samples of your writing — something boring you'd like to improve or something with voice that you'd like to brag about.

Course tuition is $10; scholarships are available for students to whom this fee is a burden. Register at thedatabank.com:

Participants study the anatomy and physiology of the human body, develop vocabulary common in the EMS field, and improve reading and test-taking skills.
