ADULT BASIC EDUCATION, A GUIDE FOR TEACHERS AND TEACHER TRAINERS.
National Education Association, Washington, DC.
A TEACHER TRAINING MANUAL DEVELOPED IN THREE ADULT BASIC EDUCATION WORKSHOPS SPONSORED BY THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR PUBLIC SCHOOL ADULT EDUCATION (NAPSAE) OUTLINES A SCHEME APPLICABLE BOTH TO TRAINEES AND TO THEIR DISADVANTAGED CLIENTELE. TEACHER TRAINING METHODS INCLUDE ROLE PLAYING, TALKS BY EXPERTS, DEMONSTRATIONS AND EXHIBITIONS, FIELD TRIPS, FILMS, SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION, WORK GROUPS, AND INDIVIDUAL STUDY. THE ADULT BASIC CURRICULUM INCLUDES READING SKILLS, LANGUAGE ARTS, AND CONCEPTS IN MATHEMATICS, CITIZENSHIP, FAMILY AND COMMUNITY LIFE, AND ADJUSTMENT TO THE WORKING WORLD. TO COPE WITH SUCH PROBLEMS AS LOW STUDENT MOTIVATION AND SELF-IMAGE, ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL DEPRIVATION, FEAR AND HOSTILITY, AND VALUES AND BEHAVIOR AT VARIANCE WITH MIDDLE-CLASS AND UPPER-CLASS NORMS, THE TEACHER NEEDS ABOVE AVERAGE RESOURCEFULNESS AND HUMAN UNDERSTANDING, AND MUST DEVELOP SKILL IN SELECTING AND USING PRINTED MATERIALS (NOTABLY THE MAJOR SEQUENTIAL LITERACY SYSTEMS), AUDIOVISUAL AIDS, CLASSROOM TECHNIQUES, COUNSELING ACTIVITIES, AND STANDARDIZED TESTS. IN WORKING WITH NON-ENGLISH-SPEAKING ADULTS, ORAL TEACHING SHOULD BE STRESSED. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES A SAMPLE ONE-WEEK TRAINING SESSION, EVALUATION SHEETS AND OTHER FORMS, SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES AND RESOURCES, SIX APPENDIXES, AND NUMEROUS REFERENCES.) THIS PUBLICATION IS AVAILABLE FOR $5.00, FROM NAPSAE, 1201 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036. (LY)
