This guide has been developed by Penn State University’s Institute for the Study of Adult Literacy (ISAL).The guide will help IET/IELCE  programs and their partners adapt existing curriculum and/or develop new basic skills curriculum to help adult education students successfully complete occupational skills training and move forward on a career path. This guide focuses on the Adult Education and Literacy, or basic skills, component of an IET program, not the occupational or workforce preparation component. This guide presents a variety of options for how to contextualize curriculum. Guide users will need to determine which approaches and models are appropriate for their program.
