Critical Friends for ELA is:
- A facilitated group of teachers that meets several times to analyze assignments and resulting student work
- A form of professional development with both an immediate effect and a lasting impact on strengthening your teaching and the learning experiences of your students
- A meaningful way to engage with the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education for ELA/Literacy (CCRSAE-ELA)
- A mini-community that supports reflective practice
