Thanks for joining our workshop on workforce reading, writing, and mathematics for adults. Many thanks to The Literacy Cooperative of Greater Cleveland for sponsoring today’s webinar.
Today we will learn how to answer the question of all adult learners: “Why do I need to know this?”
Adults need fundamental skills in reading, writing and mathematics for success in on-the-job training and workplace certifications. They also need to be able to apply these essential skills in the workplace environment. During this workshop you will:
- Understand the economic impact of adults increasing their reading, writing, and math skills
- Explore examples of reading, writing, and math tasks from workplace scenarios and certifications
- Gain up-to-date information on growing regional jobs to keep adults motivated
- Experience a career exploration lesson that builds reading, writing, and math skills
Learn how to engage adults to simultaneously build both workforce and basic academic skills. Your adult learners will walk away feeling more prepared for workplace certifications, and life. Sample lessons will be shared from The Literacy Cooperative’s free and UPDATED downloadable Contextualized Curriculum. Each curriculum focuses on an industry with high entry-level growth in Northeast Ohio: manufacturing, construction, IT/digital literacy, hospitality, and healthcare. The strategies and lesson plans shared in this session can be modified for use with a wide variety of adult learning contexts.
