PIAAC Request for Teacher Input

June 11, 2019

Program Administrators:


At last Friday’s Meeting, I requested that Program Administrators query their teachers (ESOL, ABE, HSE Prep) to gather input with respect to the following question:


“What do teachers do to encourage reading outside of class?”


I am collecting examples of good practice to share with others in the region as the recent PIAAC data shows that increased reading outside of class is key to increased reading skill level.


Thanks for your support,
