ABE (Adult Basic Education)

Designed for adults who wish to improve basic reading, writing, or math skills.  We offer open Learning Labs where instructors work with students individually or in small groups. High school credits may be awarded upon request.

Basic English Labs

Reading for Comprehension: Develop reading skills from basic understanding to advanced interpretation of information, prose, fiction, drama, and poetry sufficient to succeed with grades 9-12 standards and high school equivalency tests.

The Writing Process: The composing process begins with the writer’s experience, some thinking, and a first draft, which then leads to revision, correction, and a final copy. Students will learn the modes of discourse: narration, description, explanation, and persuasion necessary to create good writing.

Speaking With Confidence: Investigate and put into practice the various styles and methods of public speaking. Learn skills needed for good speech communication: conception, organization, techniques of generating interest, the use of audio-visual aids, audience inclusion and involvement, and overcoming performance apprehension.

Math

Develop skills that can lead to completing high school credentials. Individualized instruction focuses on Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry. Build foundational math skills to find success in the workplace, refresh skills after a long time away from school, and get started earning high school graduation credentials.

Pre-Algebra: Review of basic math skills and an introduction to more advanced concepts needed for algebra.

Algebra: Find success with basic Algebraic concepts, solving equations, polynomials, and rational expressions typically offered in a high school Algebra I course.

Geometry: Explore two- and three-dimensional shapes and their properties, properties of lengths, areas, volumes, and rules of quadrilaterals, circles, triangles, prisms, cones, pyramids, and regular polygons.

HiSET Math Class (Machias- Tuesday)

Free

with George McBride

Feb 14, 2017 at 10 am, runs for 20 weeks

Math can be a dreaded subject for many, but it is included on the HiSET because mathematical skills are a major component to success whether you are looking for a better job or want to go to college. Most colleges and universities include at least one mathematics course as part of its general education requirements in almost any degree you can think of pursuing and some degree programs like engineering and pre-med are extremely math-heavy.  Even if you don’t plan on going into a field where math is heavily used, there are still some fundamental mathematic concepts you will need to carry with you into the professional world.

In this class, you will develop skills that can lead to completing the HiSET exam to receive your high school credentials. Instruction focuses on Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry. You will build foundational math skills to find success in the workplace, refresh skills after a long time away from school, and prepare to take the HiSET Math test.
