Essential Look-fors for Remote Instruction, 2020-2021
Strengthening Adult Education Remote Learning—Guidance for Massachusetts Adult Education Programs, May 2020
The following resources are useful in developing curriculum materials that are aligned to the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education (CCRSAE) and the Massachusetts English Language Proficiency Standards for Adult Education (MA ELPS). The templates for developing a scope and sequence, instructional unit and lesson plan are optional to use.
Note: The MA ELPS are the standards to which to use for English language acquisition. Programs providing mathematics instruction to English language learners should align instruction to the CCRSAE for Mathematics and the Standards for Mathematical Practice, so that instruction is reflective of the CCRSAE for Mathematics instructional shifts.

Curriculum for Adults Learning MathA lack of strong mathematics skills can be a significant barrier for adult learners in achieving a high school equivalency or gaining access to postsecondary education. Programs looking for mathematics curriculum resources may be interested in the Curriculum for Adults Learning Math (CALM). CALM is a high-quality, CCRSAE-aligned mathematics curriculum for all adult education levels. CALM instructional units include complete lesson plans, formative assessments for each lesson, and a performance-based assessment. CALM aligns to the CCRSAE and the Standards for Mathematical Practice and reflects the CCRSAE instructional shifts. CALM prepares students for earning a high school equivalency credential and lays the foundation for college and career readiness.
