The Washington State Adult Learning Standards
Here's the WA Learning Standards Link that will be talked about in class a few times. This link will take you to a website with links to the learning standards and to some "in process" curriculum sites for both ABE and ESL outcomes. Feel free to peruse; these documents will help you, along with your various observations, to get a clearer idea of what the ESL levels look like in community and technical colleges across the state of Washington. Enjoy!!
