Since 2010, SURN has worked in conjunction with Virginia secondary English educators to develop and implement materials and lesson plans to support the Virginia College and Career Readiness Initiative through an integrated approach to teaching and learning focused on student engagement, authentic literacy, and service learning. The 2014-15 school year will see the fourth cohort of teachers participant in this program in a series of 4 professional development workshops and intersession assignments.
