"If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow." ― John Dewey

This section contains resources to support standards-based instruction and links to Virginia's adult education standards: the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education and Virginia's Adult Education Content Standards for English for Speakers of Other Languages Instruction.

Preparing Virginia’s adult learners for college, careers, and responsible citizenship in the 21st century world requires delivering instruction that is both rigorous and engaging instruction. The SBI: VA training initiative aims to support educators in improving the quality of instruction with a focus on closing gaps between the standards and classroom practice and building professional learning communities around the state.
