Welcome to Understanding the ABE
web-based training will provide you with information and resources
that will help you better understand the ABE (Adult Basic Education)
student. If you want to be effective in helping your students
achieve their goals, it is important that you know about a variety
of aspects regarding the adult student.
|Everything that you
say, do, or write can impact whether or not the ABE student
is comfortable and productive in your classroom. Every student
is different. Every student comes to you with unique needs and
abilities. It is up to you to recognize these needs and abilities
and assist your students in achieving their goals.
So, how can you be more effective when
working with the ABE student? The first step is awareness. If there
are factors of which you are unaware, those factors can impact the
relationship you build with your student, but more importantly they
can impede your student's progress.
