On Tuesday and Thursday this week, educators at RISE Academy for Adult Achievement will be working on selecting and using resources that support the College and Career Standards for Adult Education (CCRS). Participants will begin the session reviewing the features of text complexity and text dependent tasks before moving on to apply this understanding to the selection of available open education resources. Teachers will complete the learning session by engaging in instructional moves they will focus on using in their classes this semester, Shared Annotations and Modified Fishbowl.
