overview of college readiness initiative
Overview of College Readiness Initiative
  • IHL staff began dialogue with the American Diploma Project (ADP) staff in January, 2007.
  • With assistance and information from ADP, ACT, MDE, & SREB, the College Readiness Committee was established with members from IHL universities.
  • Several months were spent on developing standards for English and mathematics with input from CJCs, MDE, and high school teachers.
importance of college and work place readiness
Importance of College (and work place) Readiness
  • All students deserve to be ready for college on leaving high school.
  • Many students with high GPAs do not have adequate reading, writing, thinking, and computing skills to be successful in entry-level, credit-bearing college courses.
  • The rigor of high school courses and their alignment with college expectations are critical factors in success during post secondary education.
  • College readiness knowledge and skills transcend the college environment.

Match of Standards with Curriculum Frameworks

English: Tenth Grade MS Language Arts

  • Review the CF section on DRAFTING - pg. 282
  • Turn to the WRITING section of the CR standards and review the section on COMPOSING.
  • Can you see alignment? Are there problems of clarity? What might be confusing for high school English teachers? How can the alignment of these two documents be improved?
  • Discuss your responses to the questions with your team.
  • Be prepared to share your thoughts with the large group.
