Advancing CA Adult Education Model Program

In the City of Moorpark, Principal Sean Abajian of Moorpark Adult School noticed that the local transit authority offered a Free Fare Program for college and high school students, but not adult students. After inquiring about including adult students he was informed that the decision was made at the county level.

CAEP National Briefing on High-Impact Practices

February 26th 10:00 a.m. PST

In partnership with the Chancellor’s Office, the California Department of Education, and CAEP Leadership, an independent research team led by Dr. Barbara Endel was commissioned to collect evidence-based high-impact practices from 12 of CAEP’s strongest programs. The intent was to document what is working well and how other programs in and outside of California can use the research for continuous improvement.

The project resulted in a set of exciting findings from interviewing 12 CAEP exemplars in Fall 2023. These findings merit CO/CDE/CAEP to share what is working with a national audience interested in knowing what California is doing well. Register for this webinar through the link below!

Top 10 Ways to Teach Idioms and Slang in The Classroom--a Game-changing Approach!

Many ELT teachers feel that there is a missing piece. Their pupils are well prepared to pass tests, but when it comes to understanding real-world English, namely idioms, slang, and common reductions, they fall short and remain "outsiders" feeling isolated from the locals. Author "Slangman" David Burke will will offer game-changing, proven techniques and free materials that teachers can use immediately, including access to daily videos presenting the most popular up-to-the-second slang being created each day. This will additionally enable teachers to be one step ahead of their students who bring the newest slang into their classrooms and want to know what it all means.
