MATERIALS FOR THE ADULT BASIC EDUCATION STUDENT, BIBLIOGRAPHY.
MACK, LYNN; AND OTHERS
THE DIVISION OF ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS OF THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION AFFIRMS THAT ADULT PARTICIPANTS SHOULD NOT USE CHILD-ORIENTED MATERIALS. ASIDE FROM BEING EGO-DESTRUCTIVE, SUCH MATERIALS DO NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO APPLY READING AND COMPUTATIONAL SKILLS TO THE NEEDS OF ADULTS IN AN ADULT WORLD. READING ABOUT THE WORLD OF WORK ADDS TO THE STUDENT'S KNOWLEDGE OF OCCUPATIONS WHILE IMPROVING COMMUNICATION SKILLS. SUCH MATERIALS, DESIGNED TO ASSIST ADULTS IN APPLYING THEIR READING, WRITING, AND COMPUTATIONAL SKILLS TO ADULT LIFE, ARE INCLUDED IN THIS ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF MATERIALS SUITABLE FOR USE IN ADULT BASIC EDUCATION CLASSES AT THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LEVEL, GRADES 0-8. PROGRAMED MATERIALS WHICH ENABLE THE STUDENT TO PROGRESS AT HIS OWN RATE ACCORDING TO THE PRINCIPLES OF ADULT-LEARNING PSYCHOLOGY ARE GROUPED IN SEPARATE SECTIONS. SUBJECTS COVERED ARE COMMUNICATION SKILLS, COMPUTATION SKILLS, SOCIAL STUDIES, THE WORLD OF WORK, INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY DEVELOPMENT, AND MATERIALS FOR THE SPANISH SPEAKING STUDENT. SUPPLEMENTS ARE PLANNED. USE OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION AND CRITERIA USED IN BOOK SELECTION FOR BEGINNING ADULT READERS ARE OUTLINED. (AUTHOR/AJ)
