The Next Step: Partnering with K-12 Schools to Prepare Students for the Rigors of College Work
Ullman, Ellen
Community College Journal, v84 n5 p34-38, 40-42 Apr-May 2014
Teachers dedicate their lives to working with students, but also in learning from each other. In programs around the Spokane, Washington area of the U.S., teachers have been meeting with the intention of strengthen connections and smooth transitions between K-12 schools and institutions of higher education in alignment with expectations for the "Common Core State Standards" and to discuss the implications for remediation. In addition to reviewing curricula with colleagues, participating instructors at the K--12 and higher education levels are working to update community college placement processes. In this article, Ellen Ullman provides a look at how some community colleges are working with K-12 schools to align reforms for improved results.
