Purposeful and Transparent
Through discussion about a specific health concern students in the ABLE program decided to link their purpose of working toward their GED (reading and science) with locating specific information about preventing skin cancer.

Students began with what they already knew about skin cancer and locating information and applied it to the new situation of discovering ways to prevent skin cancer.

Building Expertise
This topic relates to events happening in student's personal lives. This process of seeking guidance and support by asking for information can be transferred from one adult role to another.
