The U.S. Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education, funds the Literacy Information and Communication System (LINCS), a national system that provides information on a variety of topics related to literacy.
One aspect of LINCS is the online resource collections relating to basic skills, program management, and workforce competitiveness. This study guide is intended to help LINCS users become more familiar with a resource in the workforce education collection. The intended audience includes teachers, administrators, and community partners.
The guide is divided into three sections. The first section introduces the concept of contextualized instruction; helps practitioners develop instructional strategies for teaching basic skills in the context of work; and identifies ways to encourage the transfer of learning from the classroom to the workplace.
The other sections deal with the importance of adult education for work and with the quality elements of a model adult education for work program.
