I have a few questions for you regarding the new College and Career Readiness (CCR) Standards for Adult Education. As you may know, in May 2014, the U.S. Department of Education released the new CCR Standards. While optional for states, they “…are not a curriculum, and states or programs choosing to adopt them will need to complement the standards with high-quality curricula that align with the content and expectations” (p. 16).
Which states are adopting the CCR or considering adopting them? What is your program or state doing to help teachers get up to speed with CCR Standards?
Instruction must delve deeply into:
- English Language Arts and Literacy (reading, writing, speaking, and listening)
It appears that other subject areas are embedded in the ELA Standards. So do practitioners also need a deeper understanding of science, history, and social studies content as well?
Thanks for your thoughts,
