We created the following scavenger hunt to introduce CollectEdNY to groups of teachers in a way that we hope is fun and interactive. We use it with teachers as a way to invite them to participate by rating and making comments on resources.
The goal of CollectEdNY is to provide a platform for adult literacy educators from across New York State to provide leadership in our field and to share their wisdom and expertise. Project staff and content specialists from across New York State choose resources based on their potential utility for NYS adult educators in providing high quality instruction as they prepare students for the High School Equivalency exam, and develop the power of adult education in the Common Core Era. The resources are all related to at least one of the following content areas: College & Career Readiness, Math, Reading, Science, Social Studies, Technology and Writing.
Adult literacy teachers try these resources out in their classrooms and then post reviews. The reviews summarize the resource, rate it using an easy to follow criteria, and offer specific recommendations for getting started and using it in the classroom.
CollectEdNY is a collaborative project of the New York State Education Department, The City University of New York Adult Literacy/HSE Program and the Literacy Assistance Center, supported by funding from the New York State Education Department, Office of Adult Career and Continuing Education Services.
