Abstract: About 59% of adult education students function between 4th and 9th grade. In order to have efficient success with these “middle-level” learners, programs need systems and methods designed specifically for these students. These learners (4th-9th) require a special strategy. Each student requires an effective individualized approach for their specific academic and emotional needs. Instructional systems in the middle levels can impact long-term success by ensuring fluency of basic skills competencies before advancement, developing independence and confidence, and by incorporating time into instruction and assessment. Join this session to explore methods from Pace Learning Systems designed specifically for the middle-level learner since 1977.
