Good Morning to Everyone in the LINCS Reading and Writing Community of Practice!
My name is Jeri Gue and I am privileged to become the moderator for this group.
I am currently the Curriculum Coordinator for Adult and Prison Education in Delaware, so I have had the opportunity to work with adult educators and administrators throughout our state in a variety of areas – curriculum, standards, instruction, and professional development for ABE, ESL, GED, and our adult high school in both community programs and corrections. During this time, I have co-authored several manuals including an ABE writing manual for transition to college or careers and an argument research writing manual for our high school students. While I have been in this position for about eight years, I have spent the past sixteen of my nearly 30 years as an instructor/coordinator in adult education.
I am very excited about this opportunity and look forward to the many discussions and ideas you all have to offer! As I have participated in this LINCS community of practice, as well as others, I have gained valuable information as an instructor, a coordinator, and a professional developer. The comments you post, the resources you share, and the questions you ask, and answer, help us all become better educators.
I look forward to facilitating many more discussions as we continue to investigate reading and writing as backbones for academic instruction, work readiness skills, language acquisition, civics, vocations and careers, and life skills. Please continue to share what is happening in your programs, what strategies are effective for your students, and how you differentiate and integrate instruction. Continue to ask questions and share ideas.

I look forward to listening and learning from each of you!
