Coalition on Adult Basic Education
ANN Annual Meeting
COABE Conference 2020
April 5th – April 8, 2020
Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, Baltimore, Maryland
An Open Invitation:
The Adult Numeracy Network holds its annual meeting at the Coalition on Adult Basic Education (COABE) conference as a day focusing on adult numeracy. We encourage people interested in math education for adult learners to join us.
This full-day institute is designed for experienced as well as novice teachers and staff developers who work in ABE, GED, ESOL, and developmental college programs. Participants will leave with classroom-ready activities that they can immediately use with students at all ability levels. Math practitioners at all experience levels will find support and inspiration while working with colleagues.
The $150 cost of registration includes a full day of professional development, lunch, and a one-year ANN membership (new or renewal).
It is possible to attend the ANN preconference without registering for the full COABE Conference.
COABE Numeracy Strand (sponsored by ANN)
ANN also sponsors a conference strand on adult numeracy at COABE. An incredible group of teachers and professional developers present in this strand each year. We hope you will be able to join us in future workshops.
