Making Sense of Fractions (Cambridge/Blended) Mon, 06/03/2019 - 9:00am to 3:30pm

Screenshot from a video on making sense of fractions

Both teachers and students often report that the hardest thing to teach and learn is FRACTIONS. There are so many rules to remember and none of them seem to make sense. By building a solid conceptual understanding of fractions, teachers and students can understand those rules instead of memorizing them. Fractions don’t have to be a source of frustration and anxiety!

Researchers interviewing community college students found that they had a lack of conceptual understanding that had "by the time they entered developmental math classes, significantly impeded the effectiveness of their application of procedures. And application of procedures is, without concepts and a disposition to reason with them, all that students have left to go on” [Givvin, Stigler, & Thompson, 2011, p. 14]. While this research was conducted with students in developmental math classes, this same issue applies to learners in our programs.

Opening Your Doors: Recruitment, Screening, and Orientation in Distance and Blended Learning Programs (Webinar) Wed, 06/05/2019 - 10:00am to 11:00am

Early research on learner success in distance learning for adult basic education elucidated the importance of finding learners for whom distance was a good fit and then dedicating resources to ensure a thorough orientation. The expansion of educational technology commonly used today to support blended learning  requires a different lens for thinking about recruitment, screening, and orientation. In this Tech ‘n Tell webinar, the second in a series of three on distance and blended learning, we provide guidance for determining characteristics of learners for whom distance and blended learning are a good fit, getting them in the door, and then figuring out how to best support their engagement in learning. The webinar will feature past research and first-hand experience from work done within the IDEAL Consortium.

The focus of this session responds to the PD needs identified from a recent survey of current IET/IELCE program directors.

Teaching in a distance learning program (or bringing in online curricula to support learning in a blended scenario) requires more engagement than assigning work in an online curriculum. Teaching at a distance or in a blended model does not mean turning over the instruction and assessment of learners to that online curriculum. In this Tech ‘n Tell webinar, the final in a series of three on distance and blended learning, you will learn the characteristics of involved instruction and be introduced to several assessment strategies proven useful in distance and blended learning adult education programs.  The webinar will feature past research and firsthand experience from work done within the IDEAL Consortium.

CALM teaches math concepts using real-world contexts and is appropriate for all adult learners. Lessons focus on explorations so students can build conceptual understanding in a spiral approach that helps connects many math concepts.

CALM is aligned to the College and Career Readiness Standards for Math, including both the instructional shifts and the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Carefully selected, quality resources are used in CALM, including the EMPower series, which is referenced extensively. Each CALM unit includes individual lessons (or references to resources), formative assessments for each lesson, and an end-of-unit performance-based assessment.
