Many educators created projects as students or have had their own students do projects for their classes. This course is intended for anyone who wants to refresh their understanding of project-based learning (PBL) and use new technologies and approaches in their teaching. Using a blending learning approach with project-based learning allows teachers to introduce their classes to problem-solving tasks, enhance learners’ critical thinking, and improve students’ research and communication skill, leveraging both face-to-face and online learning options.

If you enjoy learning in a collaborative, virtual environment, consider this highly interactive course. Come learn new instructional approaches and technologies, while developing your own project by course end.

Estimated Completion Time: 3-4 hrs/week (30 hours total)

In this foundational course you’ll learn how to keep students at the center of numeracy instruction. You’ll explore the context, content, and cognitive and affective components of numeracy, how to address the needs of students with learning gaps, how students’ styles of learning math and levels of math knowledge affect their math skills, and ways to build student’s success in learning math. You’ll plan classroom activities, test them with your students, and share your experiences with fellow teachers.

“This has been the best PD I have ever had in my eight years with adult education. I have been able to immediately implement the strategies and ideas into my classroom. I have really gained so much knowledge in the past six weeks and I am a better teacher because of this course.” Stacy Rettig, Instructor, Boone County Adult Education, KY

Registration for this course is open only to groups of 8 people or more. Please contact us at literacy@worlded.org to set up a session for your group/organization.

Individual registration is not available at this time.

When you focus on helping students stay in programs, you address all the ingredients of program quality and effective instruction. Student persistence is, in fact, an indicator of program strength. In this course, you will use the six core “drivers” of persistence, identified in the New England Learner Persistence Project, to organize and review a wide range of successful persistence strategies, and to prioritize the ones that might have the most impact in your own program.

Read a blog post about one participant’s experience applying some of what she learned in this course in her own program.

“This is one of the best courses I have ever taken! It gave me exactly what I needed in a way that made it possible for me to reflect on my own work and situation. As I read the texts I got a lot of ideas that I will implement in my program, and that I know will benefit my students.” Elisabeth Goodwin, Distance Learning Instructor, Pima Community College, Adult Basic Education for College & Career, Tucson, Arizona

Registration for this course is open only to groups of 10 people or more. Please contact us at literacy@worlded.org to set up a session for your group/organization.

Individual registration is not available at this time.

This course is brought to you through a partnership between World Education and the Adult Numeracy Center at TERC. It was developed by the MA SABES PD Center for Mathematics and Adult Numeracy at TERC, with funding from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. This course is also offered for free to MA ABE practitioners through the SABES PD Center for Mathematics and Adult Numeracy.

The Mathematizing ESOL II: Percentages and Decimals course builds upon and extends conceptual understanding of math topics and how they can be integrated into ESOL instruction. In the prerequisite to this course, Mathematizing ESOL I, the focus is on math notation and operations with whole numbers. In this course, we extend that knowledge to include other rational numbers, with an emphasis on percentages and decimals. We will explore these concepts before looking at real life applications of these math skills and strategies to contextualize them in the ESOL classroom.

Estimated Completion Time: 4 hrs/week for 5 weeks (18 hours total)

Prerequisite: Mathematizing ESOL I: Integrating Whole Number Operations
