Templates and Helpful Resources

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.
