Rocky Mount, NC - Nash Community College was the recent host site for a Student Achievement in Reading (STAR) training session for the central region of the North Carolina Community College System. STAR teaches Adult Basic Education instructors to use evidence-based reading instruction in the classroom to help students improve their skills in alphabetics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension by explaining new concepts and modeling strategies and by providing feedback during class. Nash Community College Basic Skills instructors are certified STAR trainers. The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE) developed STAR to provide states with the resources and training needed to improve the quality of reading instruction in adult education.
