Meredith assists states,
districts, schools, publishers and organizations working to ensure strong
student learning through implementation of the Common Core State Standards. She
worked on the Common Core State Standards for ELA and is a member of the Common
Core ELA Working Group. Specifically, she worked on the reading standards and ran
the text complexity measurement studies that developed and validated tools for
analyzing both quantitative and qualitative text complexity that are central to
the CCSS. Meredith has taught in a wide range of settings over the
past 30 years, spanning kindergarten through graduate school.
She was an adjunct at Community College of Vermont, and taught reading
and writing instructional methods courses in the Technology Extension program
for new teachers transitioning from industry to the classroom. Recently, she had a chance to combine her
expertise in CTE and the Common Core as a member of the Promoting College and
Career Ready Standards in ABE task force. The work of that group resulted in the
publication of College and Career
Readiness Standards for Adult Education.
