Abstract: If you have ever worked with an I-BEST (Integrated Basic Education Skills Training) program, you will know that I-BEST students fast track through both GED® testing and skills training through this nationally recognized instructional model. I-BEST students are quicker than their traditionally enrolled contemporaries to improve their basic skills in reading, writing, and math, complete their GED exam, and arrive at a career entry point. The downside to I-BEST is that it’s expensive. Heather has taught 4 I-BEST programs and has come to realize that there are ways to replicate components of I-BEST at very low or no additional cost to your program. This webinar will look at how, by making a few simple changes, we can help our traditionally enrolled students also get the best that our programs can offer.
