Transitions Integration Framework
The TIF is the cornerstone of ACES and was designed to provide ABE programs and instructors with guidance on the effective integration of transitions skills into instruction at all levels of ABE.
TIF 2.0 Lessons
This folder contains new example TIF lesson plans that were updated in 2023 as part of the TIF 2.0 project, using a newly designed lesson plan template. They include ideas for incorporating important topics like DEI (Diversity/Equity/Inclusion) and SEL (Social Emotional Learning), as well as strategies for adapting the lessons to a variety of delivery models.
ATLAS is working to cultivate a collection of ACES Routines that can be used at a variety of levels and in many different teaching contexts. New routines are available here! Do YOU have a great ACES routine that would help learners to develop and hone their skills in one or more of the TIF categories? Write up your idea as an ACES Routine and submit it to be shared as part of the TIF 2.0 updates! (And earn 1 CEU for your work!)
ACES Observation Tools
These observation tools have been developed to make it easier for you to keep track of ACES implementation in your program.
Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility
Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility is being added to the Featured Resources as part of our effort to look at ACES/TIF through the important lens of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and social emotional learning (SEL). Part of how they fulfill this mission is by sharing a robust collection of classroom resources that focuses on helping people understand current issues, celebrate diversity, and explore intersectionality. The lesson collection is very well-organized and can be searched using key terms and/or by applying various filters.
