The Adult Literacy Education Core Curriculum (ALECC) is a 7-module, 24-hour core knowledge curriculum for adult educators and practitioners new to New York State-funded adult education programs. It was developed under the auspices of the NY State Department of Education to provide foundational training for individuals new to the field of adult literacy teaching and learning. The workshops explore science-based research, key theories, and best practices. The goals of this core knowledge curriculum are to build a sustained and systematic statewide process that will establish a statewide learning community.

The sessions are: Introduction to Adult Literacy Education, Digital Literacy, Valuing Diversity, Art and Science of Teaching Reading, Teaching English to Adult Speakers of Other Languages, Teaching Numeracy and Quantitative Literacy, and Indicators of Program Quality.
