I am starting a Public Financial Knowledge Infrastructure series, to kick off the Each One Teach One ‘financial self-defense’ part of Project Do Better: Phase I.
With regard to lesson plans: My last year of teaching was in a High School Equivalency and Adult Basic Education (HSE/ABE) classroom with a rather varied set of adult students, needing a quite varied set of lessons. Thus, I developed these 67 three hour lesson plans, and published them as free PDF documents, which I update on this blog regularly.
Algebra: I am first posting one of my more comprehensive college algebra: functions vs. relations lesson plan pdfs, and
a rationalizing the denominator example, saved from when I taught Algebra at a Community College.
Empathy-building 4-Set: I realized, in May ’22, that many different types of work can build empathy, needed for learning, via multiple learning modalities, including the work I’ve done over the years on this empathy 4-tuple: creating singing walking tours, classroom lesson plans, historical fiction story, and language learning.
HSE Lessons: I am also posting each week, with updates for discussion, in order to allow them maximum flexibility in their independent learning. I offer them freely, in the hope that other teachers and independent learners may also benefit from this work.
My calculations, based on my own study, write-up, and teaching, is that a reasonably quick learner would be able to complete the GED exams with five months of study, studying 8 to 10 hours per day, every weekday (and maybe some weekends), using these 67 lesson plans and the linked readings.
I hope that you find meaning, and that you will share your thoughts on these lesson plans. There were 5 months in this semester, with an 18 week class schedule, at the Continuing Ed. Eventually I will put the weeks in place to organize this list more cleanly. The most recent versions of each lesson here on my blog are linked below:
Lesson 1 of 67,
Lesson 54, week 14/18,
Lesson 58, week 16/18,
Lesson 62, week 17,
Final lesson of the 5 month semester: Lesson 67/67.
Learn, Share, “Be Kind.”
