The College and Career Readiness Standards curriculum development project served as a statewide introduction to CCRS lesson plan development. The instructors in the CCRS pilot produced our 'first round' of CCRS lessons and patiently and tirelessly worked as we continually introduced and incorporated new adult education CCRS information from national experts throughout the 9-month period. Our initial attempt yielded a solid foundation of CCRS knowledge and, with the experience gained during the pilot, will serve to inform furture curriculum projects and professional development workshops.
