LINCS Webinar: Making the Pieces Fit: Identifying and Boosting the Integrated Skills Addressed in a Transitions Minded Lesson

Teachers and program staff can increase learner persistence and improve learner outcomes.

Join the LINCS Community Teaching and Learning Group at 1pm ET on June 26 for “Making the Pieces Fit: Identifying and Boosting the Integrated Skills Addressed in a Transitions Minded Lesson.” This webinar and discussion will share and consider research about the benefits of a growth mindset – the belief that knowledge and understanding can develop like a muscle, attributed to Carol Dweck – and address how a growth mindset can be incorporated within the Transitions Integrated Framework for adult learners.

Stephanie Sommers and Heather Turngren, consultants at ABE Teaching and Learning Advancement System (ATLAS) with over 30 years of combined adult education experience, will share an overview of a growth mindset, walk participants through a growth mindset lesson plan, identify multiple transition skills that can be addressed by the plan’s activities, and actively engage in this topic to gain concrete ideas for the classroom. As a result, participants will be able to:

  • Analyze one transitions-minded resource to identify what transitions skills it would support
  • Better understand how other ABE programs around the country support transitions-minded instruction
  • Identify at least three new resources for classroom use
  • Practice a growth mindset in the classroom
