College and Career Readiness Standards-in-Action

Posted on 03/23/2015

College and Career Readiness for Adult Education

"It's essential to keep rigorous content standards at the heart of instructional planning, delivery, and evaluation." Christopher Coro, Deputy Director of the Division of Adult Education and Literacy, Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE)

That is exactly what 66 adult educators from 12 states did throughout their participation in an intensive, three-day training workshop held in Washington D.C., March 17-19, 2015. The workshop was designed in response to the following question: What do adult educators need to know and be able to do to translate content standards into college and career readiness (CCR) aligned curriculum and instruction? Participants will tell you they know now! They spent three action-packed days learning the core instructional actions to effectively implement CCR standards in adult education classrooms.

Under the guidance of StandardsWork Inc. External link opens in new window or tab staff and coaches/trainers, participants delved into the instructional and institutional implications of CCR standards. Half the participants worked with the CCR standards for English language arts/literacy while others immersed themselves in the math standards. Participants left the workshop equipped with ready-to-use training material that will enable professional development staff to provide training activities statewide.
