Adult Basic Education (ABE)
The Turn•Around Agenda is a member organization of ProLiteracy
, Literacy Texas
(state coalition for literacy), and Literacy Coalition of Greater Dallas
, which allows TTA to stay abreast of the latest methodologies and trends in education.
The Adult Basic and Secondary Education (ABE / ASE) programs serve students ages 17 and over who are not formally enrolled in school and who have academic skills below the high school completion level. Each student receives an individualized education plan designed to meet his/her specific needs.
Coursework varies depending on each student’s goals. Independent, one-on-one and small group study methods are used. Coursework includes some or all of the following:
- Writing, Speaking, Listening
- GED Test Preparation
The Adult Literacy program teaches students basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. Students will develop an understanding of how to read and comprehend basic passages; essay writing; and the basics of mathematics.
