MyFoundationsLab® for Career Readiness

MyFoundationsLab enables adult learners of varying academic abilities and educational entry points to identify and fill academics gaps, learn at their own pace, and achieve mastery of the fundamental skills required for successful transitions to career or postsecondary pathways. The Career Readiness content area in this version of MyFoundationsLab is aligned to WorkKeys® to help learners build the competencies needed to improve employability, attain a Florida Ready to Work credential, earn a National Career Readiness Certificate, or establish themselves in high-demand careers. The 2014 update is aligned to the benchmarks for the National Reporting System for Adult Education.

Personalized Content

Create a text that works for you and your students. The McWhorter Module Solutions (MMS) for course redesign provides a flexible new model for creating and producing state, institution, course, and student-specific integrated reading and writing (IRW) texts matched to required learning objectives or core competencies.

Drawing on McWhorter’s reading text Reading Across the Disciplines (RAD), 6th Edition, her integrated reading/writing text Reading and Writing About Contemporary Issues (RAWCI), 2nd Edition, and specific individual content modules, Pearson can rapidly develop and publish custom textbooks to meet the needs of state and/or college mandates. More specifically, any of the chapters in either text above can be combined with a choice of standalone content modules to provide a specific learning experience.
