This resource includes units of work developed by different practitioners that integrate the teaching of literacy with the teaching of numeracy in adult basic education. It is designed to provide models of integration for teachers to develop similar resources on different contexts or themes. The units follow slightly different formats. Unit lengths vary from a few sessions to the basis of a semester's work. The way in which literacy and numeracy are integrated also varies; in some units there are literacy and numeracy activities on the same theme or context, and in others activities are more closely woven. The nine sections are on these topics: water, gardens, reasonable force, aboriginal land, work, women in Australia, tourist spots, juggling pool, and banking. Components of each section include the following: learning outcomes; topics; resources; future directions; teacher notes that correlate in a column format whether the activity is primarily literacy or numeracy or both, activities, resources, and assessment; and handouts. Units list additional resources that can be used to extend the students' understanding of particular mathematical skills. The activities have been written for students with skill levels across the whole spectrum of students involved in adult basic education classes, from beginning reader/writers to more advanced level students.
