EVENT DESCRIPTION: The Adult Basic Education program serves learners under a ninth grade reading level. Academic curriculum used for this program is Skills to Make Adults Ready to Succeed (SMART). Math SMART (grade level equivalent 4 – 6); Writing SMART (grade level equivalent 4 and above).
Skills to Make Adults Ready to Succeed (SMART) is an interactive, multi-media platform Math and Writing curriculum designed for students in New York State funded adult education programs with a reading/math grade level of 4-6 for Math and grade level 4 and above for Writing based on their TABE test results. This curriculum helps students become familiar with the Internet and word processing features while working in an online course management system. Digital literacy is combined with learning a skill. This online academic curriculum may be used in both the traditional classroom and distance learning. In Write SMART, students move through lessons building their writing skills while using an online course management system that encourages word processing proficiency. Students at a higher academic level may benefit from Write SMART as well. Write SMART shows the student how to develop thoughts into a cohesive writing assignment. Teachers will be able to create a class, track student progress, generate reports including student time on task and teacher grade book, and communicate with the student through the Moodle platform.
