Adult Educators from across BC had the opportunity to work and learn together to develop writing performance standards for Foundations Language Arts Levels 5-7. BCSDCEDA (BC School District Continuing Educator's Association) brought in renowed educator and researcher Sharon Jeroski to faciliate the two day session.
Jeroski is known for her work with the K-12 performance standards, which are used widely in K-12 schools throughout B.C. Last week's work provided an important tool for all adult educators by providing them with a common set of standards for adult writing for the Foundations Literacy Courses. Foundations Literacy courses build language competencies and prepare students for high school credit level courses.
