Arizona Department of Education
Adult education standards are the cornerstone for quality teaching, quality learning, and quality lives. The Arizona Adult Education Standards Initiative (Standards Initiative) represents a proactive effort by Arizona's adult education community to ensure rigor and consistency in program content and student outcomes for adult learners throughout the state. The Initiative is sponsored by the Arizona Department of Education, Adult Education Services and the products of the initiative have been developed and revised by an outstanding cadre of the state's adult educators. This third edition of the Arizona Adult Education Standards describes the state's standards in citizenship, English language acquisition for adults (ELAA), mathematics, reading, science, social studies, technology, and writing. Sample activities and glossaries are presented in each section. These standards support instructors in developing learning opportunities that prepare adult learners for successful transition to higher education, vocational and career development, and effective involvement in their communities as individuals, parents, workers and citizens.
