Teaching students how to estimate, do mental math, and use calculators will help them to better understand how to use numbers. This course focuses on how to help adult students answer key questions: When is it necessary to have an exact answer, and when is an estimate sufficient? When calculation is necessary, which tool is appropriate to use? This course examines how students develop and apply number sense and provides lots of teaching strategies and activities that you can use right away.

Supporting Student Persistence

Free

with Kaye Beall

Self-paced. Available any time. Get started today!

Adults choose to enroll in ABE, ESOL, and ASE classes with goals that require lengthy time commitments. Due to the complexity of adult students’ lives, many factors can either support or hinder students in persisting in programs until they reach their goals. Delve into the research conducted by the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) on persistence and its implications for your instruction and program practices. The researchers featured in this course interviewed Pre-GED students to find out what supported or hindered their persistence in adult basic education programs. Learn about the four supports to persistence that they identified—management of positive and negative forces, establishment of a goal by students, progress toward reaching a goal, and building self-efficacy.

By the end of this course, you will be able to explain the definition of persistence and discuss the four supports to persistence.

Numerate adults do more than calculate figures. They think about the relationships between mathematical concepts and real‐life situations. They look for patterns, make predictions, and evaluate their conclusions. They can form problems, represent them, and solve them. They apply critical thinking skills. As an instructor, you help students learn by choosing appropriate problems and guiding students as they try out new reasoning and problem‐solving strategies. This course examines mathematical reasoning and problem‐solving strategies, along with lots of teaching strategies and activities that you can use right away. Additionally, connections with the Mathematical Practices of the College and Career Readiness Standards are discussed.

Estimated Completion Time: 2-3 hrs/week (12 hours total)
