How Does Science Fit into Teaching ABE?

Hi Everyone,

I would love to hear from people how science education fits into your experiences teaching adults. For me, it has been mostly teaching health literacy. The science parts of that include basic anatomy, how the body works in terms of diesease processes and medicine use, nutrition and its effect on the body, and things like that.

How else do you integrate science into ABE and ESOL?

And then what kinds of resources would help in the kind of science teaching you do?

I would really love to hear your thoughts!!



Health Literacy Leadership Institute

This advanced professional development opportunity looks at improving the health literacy skills of health professionals and consumers at every level. Peer learning is a core component of the Institute’s educational approach. Participants work on an educational project of their choice and receive feedback from instructors highly regarded for their health literacy curriculum development work in medical education and adult literacy, and from each other. The result is a final product that is current, comprehensive, informed by research, and reflective of best practice. 

How Are Instructors Dealing with Learning Disabilities Issues in Their Classrooms?

I'm interested to know if, and how, any of you deal with issues surrounding learning disabilities in your student population.  I'm partnering with our local community college to gather resources for an off-line collection of resources, specifically for high school completion, and keep thinking that undiagnosed learning disabilities are going to be a continuing obstacle.  Do any of you deal with this issue on a regular basis, and how do you handle it?  I know that in adult populations you aren't supposed to ask if someone has a learning disability.
