This module is the fifth of five integrated professional development modules for adult literacy and basic education (ALBE) personnel.

The stated purposes of this module are as follows: to develop participants' understandings of language as social practice, using particular sites, groups, and disciplines; and to assist participants in their practice as teachers to relate these broader understandings to ALBE teaching and learning situations and design teaching strategies and activities to develop ALBE students' understandings of language as social practice. An overview consists of these components: duration, purpose, relationship to competency standards, prerequisites and/or corequisites, summary of content, delivery, list of learning outcomes, assessment criteria, minimum essential resources, and suggested reading. Program notes provide materials for six sessions. Each session consists of learning outcomes, prereading(s), suggested time, note, and material list.
