Adult Education in Tanzania.
Haule, G. O.
Based on past experience in adult education (largely literacy education) in Tanzania, a new approach is suggested. Adult education activities should be organized around skills which are reinforcing in their own right, such as masonry, mechanics, carpentry, or vegetable growing, and with immediate use in the post-training environment. Literacy teaching should be a follow-up and not a first step. Initially all teaching of illiterates should be by auditory means; having got the people involved in the learning process, literacy can be introduced gradually, by pointing out its facilitative effect; and to maintain the reading ability, a good supply of carefully selected material should be made available. More emphasis should be made to reach as many people as possible, especially in the rural areas so that Tanzania Socialism can be made a reality. (Author/EB)
