Adult Numeracy Instruction Institute One

 Registration is closed for this event

This is an "INVITATION ONLY" workshop. Only designated administrators and teachers (from adult literacy programs of Monroe #1 BOCES, Wyoming Works, Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES, Literacy Volunteers of Rochester, Rochester City School District, Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES, Genesee Valley Educational Partnership, Rochester Educational Opportunity Center, Greece Central School District)  who have submitted applications should register.

 

The U. S. Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE), is presenting a professional development model for adult basic education mathematics teachers. This new model, Adult Numeracy Instruction - Professional Development (ANI-PD), will involve practitioners from 10 adult education programs in the Finger Lakes RAEN region in an intensive, year-long professional development program aimed at improving math instruction in adult basic education and high school equivalency preparation education.

 

The ANI-PD model is built upon the principle that teacher preparation for adult mathematics instruction must be sufficiently intensive and focused on providing instructors with a strong base of mathematics content and pedagogical knowledge.
The training is grounded in the analysis of adult mathematical instruction outlined in the report, Building on Foundations for Success: Guidelines for Improving Adult Mathematics Instruction.

 

ANI-PD Goals include:

• Increase math content knowledge among teachers and program administrators.
• Increase instructional skills among teachers working with adult education students.
• Increase knowledge and use of math content standards.
• Build local program and state capacity to support adult numeracy instruction.

 

Participants will work with Adult Education Learning Standards and the Common Core State Standards and focus on four strategic instructional practices. This institute will concentrate on the content strands of Number Sense (Whole Numbers and Money) and Geometry. Teachers will receive a toolkit comprised of print materials, binders, texts and manipulatives.

 

Trainers: Aaron Kohring, Research Associate, Center for Literacy, Education and Employment, Knoxville, Tennessee; and Heidi Schuler, Adult Education Instructor, Chattahoochee Technical College-Cherokee Learning Center, Canton, Georgia.
