Teachers and administrators across the country are being tasked, through the WIOA legislation, to ensure that adult learners are able to gain or improve their livelihoods through their education. To make sure that students gain the skills that they need in order to do this, this course will help teachers and counselors guide students through a process that helps them set career goals and secure the educational services they need to pursue their goals. 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
