Public Last updated: 19th Mar 2015 Introduction to the project From late 2014 to early 2015, AELP led a DfE-funded project with four FE-sector provider organisations to develop resources for delivering English GCSEs. The particular focus of the project was the process of producing and using contextualised approaches to studying English, for learners undertaking vocational courses (especially as part of a Study Programme). The provider organisations include two independent training providers, a general FE college and an adult and community learning provider. The subject contexts chosen are: Construction and the Built Environment; Business, Administration and Entrepreneurialism; Childcare; and general life and personal interests.

A parallel project with the same four providers, on contextualised approaches to GCSE Maths, has been led by MEI.

Demands on students’ literacy skills are becoming increasingly intense and rigorous, especially in highly technical CTE courses and in today’s labor market. Students must possess the requisite literacy skills for career and academic success, yet barely one-third of high school graduates are considered proficient in reading. CTE teachers can facilitate the learning processes by scaffolding instruction with literacy strategies.

In developing the Literacy-in-CTE curriculum integration model, which was based on the successful Math-in-CTE curriculum integration study and professional development model, NRCCTE researchers at Cornell University experimentally tested two approaches to integrating literacy skills in CTE. During Literacy-in-CTE professional development sessions, CTE teachers learn to integrate effective models of reading interventions in the context of their CTE courses. 45 ways to avoid using the word 'very'.

Creating mapped stories is one of my favorite activities to help history students see the significance of location in historical events. Most of the time I have students include dated placemarks on the mapped stories that they build. Here are three free tools that students can use to map stories. The Google Earth Tour Builder allows students to create Google Earth tours in their web browsers. The Tour Builder uses a slide-like format for creating tours.

Home. The research dissemination efforts of the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) ended on March 31, 2007, with the end of the federal funding. The research publications, Focus on Basics, training and teaching resources, and other materials continue to be available for download from this Web site. These materials are no longer available in print. We hope that NCSALL's efforts improved practices and informed teaching in the educational programs that serve adults with limited literacy and English language skills, and those without a high school diploma, as well as increased the research base on adult learning and literacy.

World Education was the dissemination partner for NSCALL, 1996 -2007. World Education continues to host this site so that the valuable resources developed during this time are still accessible.
