AIDES FOR ADULT EDUCATION, A TRAINING PROGRAM FUNDED BY THE OHIO BOARD OF REGENTS UNDER TITLE 1 OF THE HIGHER EDUCATION ACT. FINAL REPORT.
COHEN, EDMUND D.; EDWARDS, WILLIAM L.
THE AIDES FOR ADULT EDUCATION WORKSHOP (FEBRUARY 10-MAY 20, 1967) WAS HELD IN CLEVELAND, OHIO BY CLEVELAND COLLEGE AND THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM TO DEVELOP BETTER CLASSROOM COMMUNICATION AND A MORE INTENSIVE LEARNING SITUATION FOR DISADVANTAGED ADULT STUDENTS. TWENTY WELFARE RECIPIENTS, ALMOST ALL NEGRO WOMEN, WERE SELECTED FOR AIDE TRAINING ON THE BASIS OF VERBAL ABILITY, READING COMPREHENSION, INTERPERSONAL ATTITUDES, AND ATTITUDES TOWARD EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION. EXPERIENCED TEACHERS IN PUBLIC SCHOOL ADULT EDUCATION WERE CHOSEN FOR THE PROJECT ACCORDING TO SUCCESSFUL CLASSROOM PERFORMANCE, INTEREST IN A TRAINING PROJECT, AND A FELT NEED FOR THE HELP OF AN AIDE. WORKSHOP ACTIVITIES WERE DESIGNED TO GIVE BOTH AIDES AND TEACHERS AN OVERVIEW OF ADULT BASIC EDUCATION, CURRICULUM MATERIALS, CLASSROOM ORGANIZATION, AND PROCEDURE. AN EVALUATION OF CLASSES WITH AND WITHOUT AIDES SHOWED THAT WITH AIDES, MORE INDIVIDUAL HELP IS GIVEN, AND TEACHERS LECTURE MORE AND ANSWER QUESTIONS LESS. THE TEACHERS THEMSELVES FELT THAT THEY COULD EFFECTIVELY HANDLE LARGER CLASSES WITH AIDES. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES APPENDIXES AND WORKSHOP STATISTICS.) (LY)
