ABE Clean Energy Ambassadors Curriculum Resource Guide
Download: Curriculum Resource Guide [PDF]
The ABE Clean Energy Ambassadors Curriculum Resource Guide provides lessons and teaching strategies that integrate clean energy information into science, math, and English language instruction for adult learners. The guide was initially developed for adult educators from eight Massachusetts ABE programs participating in the ABE Clean Energy Ambassadors Project, funded with a Workforce Capacity Grant from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and additional support from World Education, Inc.
The ABE Clean Energy Ambassadors project was designed to strengthen the on-ramp to clean energy occupations for Massachusetts ABE students. Increasing the expertise of ABE teachers and counselors who work with ABE learners so that clean energy industries can be presented and investigated in the context of ABE instruction and counseling gives learners essential information about job prospects and requirements, training, and career pathways. The value of this on-ramp can’t be underestimated: the shift that clean energy will create in our economy will require all citizens to know and understand these changes. Adult educators can use the guide to integrate clean energy concepts into their curricula.
