World Education Guide to ELA Classroom Activities that Promote Life Skills, College, and Career Readiness

Download this publication
This guide provides suggested classroom tasks that combine the academic knowledge and skills described by the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education with behaviors and composite skills needed to succeed in college, workplace, and civic life (essential competencies).

The Guide to ELA Classroom Activities that Promote Life Skills, College, and Career Readiness is divided into two tiers of suggested tasks: Tier One tasks are for learners at 0-8 GLE and Tier Two for learners at 9-12 GLE. Tier One tasks require that students apply several CCRS to achieve a focused, short-term outcome, such as a set of notes or a one-paragraph summary of an at-level text. Some of these tasks might also require real-world applications, such as actually entering work places or college campuses to observe classes, conduct interviews, or shadow jobs. Tier Two tasks are projected, based, and designed to culminate in sophisticated products, such as argumentative essays, reports, and/or slide presentations. As such, each task is designed to cover all of the essential competencies and a full range of CCRS, much as would be required of a college research paper or a full-out job search.
