Direct teaching is where ‘the teacher decides the learning intentions and success criteria, makes them transparent to the students, demonstrates by modelling, evaluates if they.

To further define the work of adult numeracy instruction for ABE and with the goal of achieving equitable math instruction for adult learners, the Minnesota Numeracy Instruction Advisory Team (MNI A-Team) holds that: Every student at every level (literacy, language, math) deserves access to rigorous, high-quality math instruction.

This report explains what "numeracy" is and why we need it, and makes the case for shifting from the current emphasis on traditional math instruction in adult education to instruction in a more comprehensive set of math skills.
