Appalachian Adult Basic Education Teacher-Trainer Reading Workshop.
Morehead State Univ., KY.
The ultimate objective of the proposed Appalachian Adult Basic Education (ABE) Teacher-Trainer Reading Wrokshop is to improve the reading ability of the rural, disadvantaged population in Appalachia. In order to achieve this goal, a teacher-trainer workshop in reading is proposed. A team of four experienced adult basic educators will be selected from the Appalachian portion of 13 states. These four will undergo an intensive, pragmatic three-week training session in reading. A training syllabus in reading will be developed during the workshop for use by the trainers. The Appalachian ABE Teacher-Trainer Reading Workshop has been developed on the assumption that ABE teachers in Appalachia need more preparation in reading, particularly for rural adults. This workshop will incorporate an introduction and/or review of the reading process with a strong element of application to supplement the present skills of the ABE teacher. (Author/CK)
