“This brief focuses on the model of contextualized instruction, illustrating it by case studies drawn from GreenWays programs in Philadelphia and Detroit that have integrated contextualized basic skills education into their occupational training programs. These programs use two different approaches to providing contextualized literacy; Philadelphia’s Green Job Readiness Partnership developed a customized curriculum oriented to the program’s participants and Detroit’s Green Jobs Training Program offered an off-the-shelf curriculum.”

Along with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, Strategy Arts and other important partners, we are pleased to announce the publication of:

“A Case Study, Reentry to Workforce Partnership.”

“Reentry is a complex issue that requires multiple stakeholders from different sectors to work and learn together. This case study discusses how to build a partnership willing to adapt and learn as well as how to create a structure to support alignment between partners. Through the collective learning process, the partners learned what people returning from prison need to be successful, and what they still need to learn to further improve Philadelphia’s reentry system.”
