ABE 064 ABE High Adult Secondary Education - Integrated 6 (1 to 15 credits)

Course Description
Designed for students to learn and/or review advanced grammar, punctuation, spelling, sentence structure, paragraph development, reading comprehension and math skills in preparation for passing of the GED exam.

Student Outcomes
1. Writing
W6.1 Determine the purpose and audience for communicating in writing.
W6.2 Select from and use a wide range of tools and strategies for overall planning and organization; reproduce, synthesize and draw sound conclusions from complex or extensive ideas; and produce a legible and comprehensible draft.
W6.3 Appropriately use extensive everyday and specialized vocabulary (including idiom, colloquialisms and cultural references as appropriate) and a variety of sentence structures (including those reflecting logical relations), in medium-length, well-sequenced, and detailed text with appropriate voice, tone, rhetorical forms, and style and in modes of organization suitable for a variety of audiences.
W6.4 Choose from a variety of strategies to make multiple simple and global revisions during the writing process. Effectively seek out, describe, and work through more global problems posed by the writing task (such as the need to re-sequence text for clarity, to add more details to make a logical argument, or to change the tone or style to accommodate the audience).
W6.5 Undertake multiple re-readings of text in order to make comprehensive edits for grammar, spelling, sentence structure, language usage, and text structure. Use appropriate editing tools as necessary.

2. Reading

Space/Shape/Measurement: architectural symbols/ models and scale modeling.
Data/Statistics: ways to interpret, represent, identify trends in or draw inferences from data (complex tables and graphs; advanced forms of statistical analysis; graphing equations and generating equations from data and/or line graphs; using concept of slope).
M6.2 Research, select and apply sophisticated, multi-step mathematical concepts and procedures (such as scale modeling, cost analysis, earnings/deductions analysis).
M6.3 Evaluate the degree of precision needed for the solution
M6.4 Independently research, select, organize and integrate mathematical information of different types in carrying out procedures, describing patterns, and/or measuring with appropriate tools, to solve the problem and to verify that the solution in reasonable.
