Module 5 - Adult Literacy Classroom
Welcome to Module #5 – The Adult Literacy Classroom
In this module, we will examine the structure and logistics of adult literacy instruction and supporting adult learners. Completing this module will help you to better understand the variety of ways in which an adult education class can be organized to support adult literacy learners and offer some ideas and resources for creating schedules to fit you and your learners.
The module is divided into the topics you see on the left. You may work through them in order or, based on the results of your Basics of Adult Literacy Education Course Pre-Survey, you may pick and choose which ones to review.
During this module, you will be asked to be an active participant in the learning process. You will have an opportunity to react to real-life situations and to express your opinions and ideas. You will also have the opportunity to consider the implications of what you are learning for your teaching situation.
An Online Learning Tool:
There is a paper-based worksheet that will guide you through each of the module’s topics. It is a place for you to take notes and process and think about what you are learning. At the end of the module, this worksheet will be a resource for you as you begin (or continue with) your instruction of adult literacy learners.

Module 5 – The Adult Literacy Classroom Worksheet
You may print this worksheet and write your answers, or type your answers directly into the digital document. If you choose to type directly in the document, don’t forget to save your work often (to a floppy, hard drive, or other drive local to you). You may wish to print the worksheet for your records when you have completed the survey.
Estimated Time: The estimated completion time for the entire module is two hours. Your actual completion time will vary, depending on the topics you choose and your pace. It is not necessary to complete the entire module in one sitting. You can easily come back later to wherever you left off to continue your study.
