STAR Training Upcoming Workshops for Fall/Winter 2009

The Adult Basic Skills Professional Development Project is pleased to invite up to 60 individuals from across the state to participate in the STudent Achievement in Reading (STAR) training, a nationally-developed professional development opportunity, that will help instructors improve reading outcomes among intermediate-level adult learners so that they can transition to higher level learning and succeed in the workplace as well as in their daily lives.
Through STAR, adult education reading instructors and administrators will:

  • understand the elements of evidence-based reading instruction; 
  • identify necessary resources including staff, time, materials, space, and feedback mechanisms;
  • and develop systems and procedures at the classroom, program, and state levels that support the implementation of evidence-based practices and make systemic changes to sustain evidence-based reading instruction.
