Abstract: In the last few years, the landscape of adult education has changed dramatically, and the popular Future series has changed too. The new edition upholds Future’s signature integration of English communication skills with robust content and meaningful contexts, as it also embraces the increased rigor of the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) and higher expectations for Workplace Investment Opportunity Act (WIOA) outcomes. In this session the presenter will introduce you to new features of Future 2nd edition including a new content-based reading strand designed to challenge students’ higher order thinking skills and build their general knowledge through multiple readings on the same topic, and a new workplace soft-skill strand which engages students’ communication and culture skills in a collaborative problem-solving task. Come see how Future 2nd Edition has changed with the times. The overview presentation will be followed by a Q & A with Sarah Lynn.
