Each set of materials includes instructions for use, supplemental materials, lesson plans, and related resources. All are designed to include academic skill development in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies while building learners' understanding of workplace and/or industry-specific concepts.
Additionally, this set of resources includes an Integrated English Literacy and Civics Education (IELCE) Toolkit, designed to support programs in mapping out IELCE-aligned features offered within their programming.
The materials focus on contextualized lessons to support learners in several high-growth industry areas across multiple learner levels and populations. These materials do contain some Illinois-specific content but can easily be modified to other states’ requirements. The site includes links to PDFs and websites for students to work in independently or as a whole class. Many aspects of the material could be adapted to be suitable for an Integrated Education and Training program or a bridge program that prepares students for entry into several industries.
