Abstract: Co-teaching strategies are important for the well being of adult students with borderline intelligence that present poor language abilities, are found scientific illiterate and seem to play an important role in everyday reaction with their classmates. Moreover, adult education encourages alternative teaching styles in order to promote self expression and social inclusion. Research has proven that people that have dropped out school in adolescent and follow an adult program in second chance schools can benefit from co-teaching, as well as participating in an educational environment that offers safety and equality. In this research we investigated the learning outcomes of 22 adult students that participated for six months in an intervention program titled Invention - Innovation Science and Culture Narratives, that included language expression abilities and physics learning skills. The results showed that there was an increase in their knowledge skills in both academic areas.
