Adult Basic Education: The State of the Art.
Griffith, William S., Ed.; Hayes, Ann P., Ed.
The central purpose of this book is to review the present state of the art in adult basic education teacher training. Each of the chapters of the book was developed specifically for the Workshop to Increase and to Improve University Teacher Training Programs in Adult Basic Education, which was held at The University of Chicago in March 1969. The 24 chapters, which serve as a benchmark of research immediately relevant to adult basic education, have been arranged in eight major categories: teacher training, adult students, testing adults, curriculum development and materials, economic considerations, programs, culture or social stratification, and overviews of adult basic education: research and programs. The final chapter contains the reactions of the participants in the Workshop, and appraises the central problem areas and research concerns for improving future teacher training programs. (DB)
