ACES (Academic, Career & Employability Skills) The goal of ACES is to ensure that Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs are able to provide effective contextualized instruction integrating post-secondary education and training readiness, employability skills, and career readiness at all levels. The Transitions Integration Framework (TIF) is the cornerstone of ACES. It was designed to provide ABE programs and instructors with guidance on the effective integration of transitions skills into instruction at all levels of ABE. The TIF defines the academic, career, and employability skills essential for adult learners to successfully transition to post-secondary education, career training, the workplace, and community involvement. The ACES Resource Library contains tools to help ABE practitioners incorporate the TIF skills into lessons and instructional settings and provides materials that can be used directly with adult learners.

It is important to understand polynomials and to be able to classify them based on the number of terms, as well as recognize the coefficients, and degrees. You must also understand how to perform mathematical operations on them. This seminar will focus on combining polynomials using addition and subtraction. It will be important to understand the rules to make sure you are combining only like terms. You will apply techniques you have learned involving exponents and general addition and subtraction rules. You will use the techniques learned in this seminar to verify solutions to various other types of polynomial problems as you move forward. When adding and subtracting polynomials, you will first identify the like terms to combine polynomials to their simplest form.StandardsCC.2.2.HS.D.3Extend the knowledge of arithmetic operations and apply to polynomials.
With recent advances in physics (and philosophy), we are finally able to make some headway into some of the most pressing questions of the universe. We will explore such topics as the big bang theory, time travel, relativity, extraterrestrial life, and string theory. We will attempt to answer some big questions such as: Was there a beginning of time? Will there be an end? Is time travel possible?
This activity can be used as an extension for unit over macromolecules or an application of the metabolism unit. The purpose behind this activitity is to really look at the foods and drinks we used to obtain energy and see of they do what they claim to do. The circle of viewpoints activity is built around generating a list of ideas/perspectives about a given topic and then using that information for a prompt to dive deeper into the topic. This activity is built in in 3 parts Background reading and brainstormingQuestions and Reserch Socratic Circle

This speaking activity allows students to role play a customer and waiter scenario in a restaurant. Warm-up includes a fun Pictionary play-doh sculpting game before moving on to restaurant phrases and then finally the role play.
This unit includes one week of lessons which immediately follow the Genetics and DNA units. The previous knowledge gained from these units, as well as a previous project where students researched and shared with their classmates a specific genetic disorder, will provide the background for students to participate in a debate about the ethical issues of applying information available through the Human Genome Project (HGP).
The Foundation for Teaching Economics is pleased to make available to teachers the content outlines, classroom activities, and teacher materials (demonstration videos and lecture presentations) for each of our residential, one-day, and online curricula. Each curriculum topic link on the left connects you to an overview and table of contents. From there, you may: browse the lessons as web pages; access download links for lessons as editable word documents; use live source links to update statistical data; print instructions and student handouts for classroom activities; and, review and prepare for your classroom by reviewing activity videos and powerpoint lectures.
The fourth episode of our podcast series, The Economic Lowdown, discusses three aspects of inflation: what it is, what causes it and how it is measured. The episode also addresses related topics such as deflation, disinflation and the role of the Federal Reserve in monitoring inflation.
This group-work lesson is designed for students with beginner to low-intermediate communication skills. The purpose of this lesson is to help students to familiarize themselves with basic elements of job ads (e.g. job title, role responsibilities, minimum qualifications, and company description), and how to compare the description in these categories to target job applicants. Through this lesson, students will learn how to analyze a job advertisement and match example job applicants to the target job. They will also work to improve their discussion skills.
This task asks students to consider the linear and quadratic functions appearing on a coordinate plane.
