Strategy Instruction-Math (TEAL)

Strategy instruction is a student-centered and research-based approach to teaching students how to learn. One of the most effective instructional approaches for adults with learning disabilities, strategy instruction centers on helping students acquire the tools and techniques that efficient learners use to understand and learn new material or skills, integrate this new information with what they already know, and recall the information or skill later, even in a different situation or place.

First Steps in Preparing for College-Level Math: Math Strategies for Success (Part 2)

This training supports participants in gaining instructional strategies that build on conceptual understanding and strengthen the mathematical foundation that adult learners will need to succeed in higher-level mathematics. The training builds upon content introduced in the First Steps in Preparing for College-Level Math: Using Soft Skills for Success training.

Adult Numeracy Instruction-Professional Development Institute 1 (ANI)

The overall vision of Adult Numeracy Instruction: Professional Development (ANI-PD) is to increase the capacity of teachers, programs, and states to provide high-quality math instruction in Adult Basic Education programs. The mathematical content of this two-day ANI-PD Institute, the first of three, consists of: number and operation sense with whole numbers and money; proportional reasoning; and geometry and measurement.

Adult Numeracy Instruction-Professional Development (ANI)

Adult Numeracy Instruction: Professional Development (ANI-PD) focuses on key instructional practices: connections among mathematical ideas; communication of mathematical thinking; mathematical proficiency; and introduction of algebraic and geometric thinking along with basic skills. Come to this interactive session and participate in simple hands-on ANI activities to use in math instruction.

First Steps in Preparing for College-Level Math: Using Soft Skills for Success (Part 1)

This training supports participants in gaining skills and strategies for teaching “soft skills” to adult learners. The soft skills and strategies selected are specific to skills that are necessary for success in the college-level math classroom. This training provides the foundational content for the First Steps in Preparing for College-Level Math: Math Strategies for Success training.

Formative Assessment-Math (TEAL)

This facilitated online course explores formative assessments, the formal and informal processes that teachers and students use collaboratively to gather evidence of student learning for the purpose of improving learning. Formative assessment is an assessment FOR learning that occurs while the learning is taking place as opposed to a summative assessment, which is an assessment OF learning that typically occurs at the end of a learning unit or course.

Differentiated Instruction-Math (TEAL)

Differentiated instruction is an approach that enables math instructors to plan strategically to meet the needs of every learner. The approach encompasses the planning and delivery of instruction, classroom management techniques, and expectations of learners’ performance that take into consideration learners’ diversity and varied levels of readiness, interests, and learning profiles.

Self-Regulated Learning-Math (TEAL)

This facilitated online course will explore strategies for encouraging students to self-regulate their learning and applying those strategies to the adult education context. Self-regulated learning refers to one's ability to understand and control one's learning behaviors. For a learner to do this, he or she must set goals, select strategies to achieve the goals, and monitor progress toward the goals. In monitoring his or her progress, a learner can determine whether a particular learning strategy is not working and can modify the approach to mastering a skill.
