Facilitator The new English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards for Adult Education were released in fall 2016. The goals of this module are to introduce ESL instructors to the new standards and how they provide the language support to meet the rigorous requirements of the College and Career Readiness Standards for adults; to explore and practice applying the standards to teaching; and to develop a deep understanding of the requirements of academic rigor along with the scaffolding strategies to help adult students reach their goals.
