TWO EXCITING NEW RESOURCES AVAILABLE NOW!!

 Members from various projects in Pennsylvania's adult education and family literacy system have created a crosswalk between the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) and the Standards Aligned System (SAS). This crosswalk will be a very useful tool for all instructors, including tutors, as our state strives to address and identify the CCRS in instruction. Learn more here.

 TLC has a new website full of resources, all related to the College and Career Readiness Standards. Many thanks to Dr. Sheila Sherow for development of this website. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and take some time to browse through all the wonderful materials on the site. You will need this password to enter the site: TLCtutorwebsite.
