Integrating Career Awareness into the ABE & ESOL Classroom: Curriculum Guide

The Integrating Career Awareness into the ABE & ESOL Classroom curriculum is a ready-to-use, flexible curriculum that prepares adult educators to incorporate career awareness and planning into their instructional and counseling activities. The lessons and handouts can be adapted for a range of students and skill levels. A review of the curriculum is available in the LINCS Workforce Competitiveness Resource Collection.

This curriculum was developed by the Massachusetts System for Adult Basic Education Support (SABES) and NCTN with funding from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the Nellie Mae Education Foundation.

To give the curriculum maximum flexibility, we have designed the handouts so that you can use them as they are or modify them to meet the needs of your classroom. For example, you might want to add local information, include pictorial graphics to aid lower-level ESOL students, or break an activity into smaller steps.

To download the handouts, click on the specific handout below. The handouts are organized by the sub-section in which they belong in the curriculum and all of them are in Word format.
