The course will prepare participants to implement the Integrating Career Awareness into the ABE & ESOL Classroom (ICA) Curriculum Guide within the context of their programs. The hands-on activities will increase participants’ level of comfort and familiarity with the curriculum guide and the related topics.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

Read an interview with one of the course facilitators, Diana Satin.

“At first I felt quite overwhelmed since I had never taken an online class before, but after reading other students’ responses that first week I became more relaxed and got into the swing of things. The other students’ and the facilitator’s positive feedback was a great help to me. Each week’s assignments had many activities that I could incorporate into our curriculum and had as many options to choose from as there are different levels of students in our program. The enthusiasm and desire of many of our students makes you want to help them succeed by showing them all the resources that are available to them. The more options we give them, the more chances they have to be successful.That is not only their goals but ours as well. I feel that now with these lessons, I have the tools to help them them.”  Linda Flint, Lake Ridge Adult Education, IN
