Online Course: Foundations of Teaching Adult Numeracy

What is numeracy? Is numeracy just another word for math? How should you approach numeracy with adult students? In this foundational course you'll learn how to keep students at the center of numeracy instruction. You'll explore the context, content, and cognitive and affective components of numeracy; how to address the needs of students with learning gaps; how students' styles of learning math and levels of math knowledge affect their math skills; and ways to build students' success in learning math. You'll plan classroom activities, test them with your students, and share your experiences with fellow teachers.

This online course runs from October 29 to December 14, 2012.
