    Hello!

    Just wondering if any of our Adult Ed members are using EdReady English for GED prep? We’d love to hear from you!

    UNM-Valencia Adult Education Center started using EdReady English Prep during the pilot stage.  We prep students for either the HiSET or GED and most prefer HiSET.  We are not yet using it systematically, but are planning to move that direction.

    We have also been offering EdReady English as a supplemental study tool to students, but we have not used it systematically yet. This Fall we will be using it more systematically within our program, as we are trying to shift our curriculum to relying primarily on digital and open resources.

    One thing that would help support us in this transition is an open NROC Developmental English textbook, like NROC offers with Developmental Math. We do have and reference the instructor’s guide that is available.

      Hi, Emily! So great to hear you will be ramping up your use of EdReady English this fall.  I’d be very interested to learn more about how you will use EdReady as part of your shift to digital/open resources.

      I am excited to be able to share a link to our newly formatted English Open Textbook:

      Also, keep an eye out because we will be hosting a webinar in mid-September about all of our OER resources!

        We  will be using NROC English materials in our non-math classes to guide students’ reading and writing skills. We’ve decided to design our face-to-face instruction to complement EdReady to help streamline students’ experiences studying in class and online at home. Our hopes is that they can use EdReady outside of class to review or preview course content, clarify understanding or get extra practice on difficult subjects, and “make up” any missed days. I’ll have more information/feedback on how this approach goes after our launch this Fall.

    Hi! We are using Ed Ready English at MCC Omaha as a classroom supplement for GED prep at this time. We are also using it for TABE prep for other students or community members as needed.
