Contextualized Manufacturing Curriculum - Bill Kuban



Thanks to Bill Kuban of Prairie State College for creating new materials and sharing them at the IACEA conference last week. Bill is an experienced Adult Education and CTE instructor who created supplemental lessons for the contextualized manufacturing curriculum in the areas of math, reading, writing, social studies and science. These lessons are aligned with Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC), Certified Production Technician (CPT) and their Safety Course. Another resource constructed by Bill are pre- and post-assessments for use with adult education students interested in pursuing MSSC certification.

For more information on where to find these materials, contact Sarah Goldammer at sgoldam@siue.edu
