TERC’s Adult Numeracy Center is developing a ‘study circle’ professional development program for the Massachusetts state Adult and Community Learning Services (ACLS) staff. Modeled after similar reading ‘study circle’ programming produced by the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL), the study circle is intended to ground administrators (such as learning center directors, professional development generalists, and Department of Education program specialists) in research in quantitative literacy and math education for adults.
