Instructional Strategies & Lesson Plans for IET (Integrated Education & Training)

Join our webinar on instructional strategies that answer the question of all adult learners: “Why do I need to know this?”

Did you know that thousands of adults fail certification exams each year due to a lack of literacy or numeracy skills?

Did you know that low level adult learners in programs aligned with career pathways tend to stay longer and achieve more?

Learn how to develop and deliver lesson plans that 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 focused on an industry with high entry-level growth in Northeast Ohio: manufacturing, construction, IT/digital literacy, hospitality, and healthcare. The instructional strategies shared in this session can be modified for use with a wide variety of adult learning contexts.
