Standards In Action
The Standards-in-Action (SIA) innovations are professional development methods and materials that support the implementation of content standards in adult education programs. The SIA innovations, developed with guidance from adult educators around the country, address four priority areas of standards-based reform:
- Building instructors' understanding of the standards taught;
- Translating the standards into curriculum;
- Aligning student assignments to standards; and
- Assessing the extent to which instructors are teaching to the standards and using effective instruction.
