The Kentucky Skills U Instructional Framework Series was designed to provide a common instructional foundation for all of Kentucky’s adult education providers. Local adult educators (who intuitively aligned instruction with college and career readiness standards, student assessment criteria, and program performance metrics) provided the impetus for this project. Building upon the work done by local providers, a state-level team designed this framework series to provide comprehensive, assessment-aligned instructional support to adult educators.
The result is a five-framework series comprised of:
• The Student Framework –– Research and strategies targeted to adult student retention and persistence, aligned with LINCS AE Teacher Competencies;
• The Mathematics Instructional Framework –– Instructional resources aligned with TABE 11/12 levels and GED® HIIs;
• The Reasoning Through Language Arts Instructional Framework –– Instructional resources aligned with TABE 11/12 levels and GED® HIIs;
• The Instructional Technology Framework –– Instructional resources, accompanied by detailed screenshots and video tutorials, aligned with LINCS AE Teacher Competencies;
• BRAND NEW! The English Language Proficiency Instructional Framework –– Instructional resources aligned with English Language Proficiency Standards and CASAS Competencies, organized both by ELP Standard and by five achievement levels.
Enjoy a deep dive into the actual frameworks and a discussion of potential uses for adult education providers.
