BASIC EDUCATION FOR ADULTS, ARE SPECIAL TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES NEEDED. PANEL AND WORKSHOP VI.
MCCALLEY, HAZEL; AND OTHERS
LITERACY PROGRAMS REQUIRE APPROPRIATE MATERIALS, ADEQUATE TESTING OF ACHIEVEMENT, AND CAREFUL SELECTION AND TRAINING OF TEACHERS. PUBLISHERS ARE NOW PROVIDING COMPREHENSIVE LEARNING SYSTEMS OF REALISTIC MATERIALS, INCLUDING THE INITIAL TEACHING ALPHABET, WORDS IN COLOR, AND AUDIO TAPES. IN ORDER TO IMPLEMENT AN ADULT BASIC EDUCATION PROGRAM, NORTH CAROLINA SET UP 24 TEACHER TRAINING INSITUTES PROVIDING 16 HOURS OF INTENSIVE INSTRUCTION BY SPECIALISTS. UNIVERSITY EXTENSION PERSONNEL WERE INVITED TO ATTEND AND EXPECTED TO PROVIDE FUTURE WORKSHOPS. IN DETROIT, THE PUBLIC SCHOOL ADULT BASIC EDUCATION PROJECT SET UP A ONE-YEAR MDTA MULTI-OCCUPATIONAL PROGRAM FOR THE FUNCTIONALLY ILLITERATE. IN ORDER TO HAVE SMALLER CLASSES, TEAM TEACHING WAS REPLACED BY THE PLATOON SYSTEM, ONE FOR EACH CURRICULAR AREA. THE LINGUISTIC APPROACH TO READING WAS USED AND WORKSHEETS IN ARITHMETIC MADE TEACHING ON SEVERAL LEVELS POSSIBLE. TRAINEES WERE PREPARED FOR SERVICE, METAL, AUTO, AND COMMERCIAL TRADES AND THREE FOURTHS WERE PLACED. INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AND TESTS FOR COMMUNICATION AND COMPUTATIONAL SKILLS WERE PREPARED. (DISCUSSION FOLLOWED ON SUCH TOPICS AS THE NEED FOR AN INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH TO THE MULTI-LEVEL PROBLEM, ROLE OF THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE, AND FEDERAL INTER-PROGRAM COOPERATION) THESE PAPERS WERE PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MANPOWER TRAINING AND THE OLDER WORKER, WASHINGTON, JANUARY 17-19, 1966.
