Hi, Community! Welcome back from COABE, those of you who attended or followed sessions from afar!
One of the six topics listed for us to address in our R&W community is "Learning in context." That topic matches WIOA's IET definitions perfectly in many respects. What do you think? (IET=Integrated Education and Training)
Would you like to dialogue with pros who are contextualizing/integrating reading, writing and other academic or work-prep skills into instruction? Would you like to dialogue about best practices for matching instruction to high-demand occupations or special needs that appeal to your students? How about integrating academics and work prep into health occupations or STEM occupations? Transitioning back from incarceration? Family literacy? Job entry?
If you are interested in accessing the PowerPoint presentation with numerous links that I offered at COABE on IET, I'm glad to send you that link IF you promise to contribute to this thread and its development. Drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's talk context! Leecy
