A very happy new year to you!
As we are all settling back into our work after the holidays, I wanted to take a moment and reflect on the year 2013. One of the biggest moments that has impacted and informed our practice was the release of the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education. The Standards place emphasis on focus, rigor, complexity of texts, evidence, and knowledge. The Standards do raise the bar higher but work towards getting our students to be college and career ready as they will transition onto postsecondary education and/or training with higher skills. What do you think about the Standards and how have they changed your practice?
Another highlight of the year has been the anticipation and preparations around the Common Core-aligned high school equivalency tests - GED 2014, HiSET, TASC etc. Please share how your program has handled the new tests? How has this impacted you or your students?
Were there other highlights were you as you look back on 2013...
Here is to a new year and new beginnings! I am looking forward to learning from you.
