The Adult Basic Education Curriculum and Its Development.
Jahns, Irwin R., Ed.; Brady, Henry G., Jr., Ed.
The report of the highlights of the Southeastern Adult Basic Education Teacher Training Institute, July 10-28, 1967, presents financial changes in the State and Federal support of basic adult education; pinpoints the essential psychological, physiological, and emotional aspects of adult learning; and attempts to relate teaching techniques to these. There is a suggestion for the maintenance of communication among Local, State, and Federal authorities. Included also is the urging of adult educators to be aware of the interrelationships of the adult's needs as a worker, consumer, and user of leisure, and to recognize the need for the adaptation of curriculum and method to the adult. Reference is made to such societal forces as increased numbers in need of training, job obsolescence, knowledge explosion accompanied by technological revolution, the relationship between the actions of the militant minority groups and the awakening of social conscience, and the concept of life-long training.
