What part of the elephant?

Hi, everyone.

The Commission on Adult Basic Education (COABE) conference was held this past week in Pittsburgh. At the risk of being like the blind man who describes the elephant by only the part he is standing by and hence can feel, my observations of dominant themes that surfaced are as follows:

*Preparing students –both native speakers and English language learners – for the high school equivalency exams or tasks

*Using all levels of Depth of Knowledge (DoK) skills with all learners, no matter their English or basic skill level DOK Level
