COURSE DESCRIPTION: As practitioners in adult literacy and high school equivalency (HSE) education, our work has always been demanding, but now that the HSE test has been revised to reflect new, more difficult standards, the demands on teachers are even greater. Teaching students to read, write and do math is no longer enough. We also need to make sure students have specific content knowledge in traditional school subjects, as well as the capacity to apply this content knowledge to analysis, problem solving and the workplace environment.
How can our instructional practice respond to these increased demands?
We know that there is no “one size fits all” approach to effective instruction.Program types and instructional models vary greatly. ….
Teacher Leaders from our Capital Region/North Country RAEN have been immersed in CUNY/ACCES Teacher Leader training. The CUNY/ACCES Framework has been developed with flexibility in mind, so that teachers can adapt and supplement it to meet the needs of their students and specific teaching environments, and provide direction and structure for the teaching of the new HSE exam in the areas of math, science and social studies, with integrated reading, writing, analytical, and problem-solving skills .Teachers will:
*** Be introduced to (or deepen their experience with) developing teaching resources – CUNY Framework Posts, MathMemos, CollectEdNY, the CUNY HSE Math Curriculum Framework
*** Learn ways to make the case for using good problems and learn strategies for using good problems in connection with the TABE and TASC exams
*** Think about how to introduce vocabulary before teaching.
*** Experience and reflect on instructional routines like Notice/Wonder and three-act math tasks both as students and as teachers
