Foundations of Teaching Adult Numeracy
with Amy Vickers
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.
