The task of teaching basic literacy skills can seem overwhelming to the new Adult Basic Education (ABE) teacher. This self-directed, self-paced online course orients new teachers to the most immediate and important aspects of teaching ABE learners in California.

The new ABE instructor may wonder about many things, such as “Who will my new students be?” “What are their literacy proficiencies and needs?” “What materials should I use?” and “How do I assess my students’ skills and document their progress?”

In some cases, individual agencies have procedures and practices that address these questions; in other cases, the California Department of Education (CDE) has specific requirements and provides documents to guide you.

Based on The ABE New Teacher Resource Guide [PDF], available on the CALPRO Web site, this course offers numerous supplemental application activities and delivers content in a variety of formats.
