Numeracy Practices for Adult Instruction
6 weeks | 30 hours
This 6-week course is designed to help teachers understand the 21st Century concept of Numeracy and to design adult instruction that facilitates Numeracy development for students in adult education programs at all literacy levels (beginning to advanced) and in diverse settings (e.g., incarcerated learners, community based-programs, community colleges, refugee centers).
Participants will be introduced to Numeracy in the context of the College and Career Readiness Standards for Mathematics. For three weeks during the course, participants will explore Numeracy instruction with the four Mathematics domains integrated together. The first of these weeks will focus on CCRS Levels A & B, the second B, C & D, and the third D & E. There will be a focus on instruction for Algebraic Thinking throughout the course.
