PreConference Institute: Bigger and Better Strategies for Integrating Standards in ABE and ESL Instruction

8:30am - 3:30pm CDT
Presented at: COABE 2016

Instructors need to help adult learners acquire the language skills, content knowledge, and cultural information required to succeed in high school equivalency (HSE) and post-secondary instruction. Inherent in this task is the ability to integrate the College and Career Readiness Standards into all ABE, ESL, and GED instruction. 

In this workshop, participants explore opportunities and challenges involved in providing standards-based to adult learners, both native and non-native English speakers.  Participants then create standards-based activities to use in their individual instructional contexts that will provide their learners with the academic language, content, and cultural information they need to pass HSE exams, enroll in post-secondary education, or access career pathways.
