Workshop in Adult Basic Education (Ohio State University, July 1-23, 1968). Workshop Report and Resource Document.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
In adult basic education, the teacher must have a close relationship with the disadvantaged student and an awareness of the adult as self directing, responsible, and experienced. An informal classroom climate and the proper teaching skills and attitudes are vital. Programed instruction must be used with care; its accuracy, agreement with existing curriculum, and compatibility with students' needs should be borne in mind. Instruction in mathematics should provide problem solving attitudes and skills rather than particular skills for particular jobs. A liberal arts approach is needed in basic education to help create free and responsible citizenship. (Committee reports are given on student recruitment, selection and evaluation of published materials, developing materials in the classroom, retention of students, and evaluation of the curriculum project. A bibliography is included.) (nl)
