What do your students need to know about transferring to a community college, or from non-credit classes to credit? What options do they have in terms of cost? What are the different pathways they should consider for their future? What support services are available to them once they are enrolled, and how should they go about finding what they need? Anna Pilloton, Director of Outreach and Community Partnerships at the College of Marin, will take you on a guided tour of the community college resources and services.

Friday, September 30, 2016, 1 – 2 pm

Federal funding for adult education and College and Career Readiness Standards are two of the signposts pointing us towards increasing the rigor of instruction in adult education to help learners reach their education and career goals. Betsy Parrish is a national expert on increasing rigor in adult education classrooms. She has published articles on the topic and created many training materials for teachers. In this webinar, she will discuss the significance of increasing rigor, and she will provide several examples of classroom activities for embedding instruction in academic language, higher order reading and listening strategies, organizational and note-taking strategies, and critical thinking at every level from beginning to advanced. This session is appropriate for ESL, ABE and ASE instructors.
