A New Conceptual Model for Adult Basic Education Staff Training with Application to Corrections, New Careers and Migrant Education.
Hoffman, Hy; Pagano, Jules
The objective of this project was to review and analyze staff development programs in adult basic education in order to identify the most promising ideas, curricula materials, methods and approaches for the purpose of designing new training models. To accomplish this, the following activities were carried out: a review of the professional literature; field visits; and a direct mail survey. Particular attention was paid to training programs and models judged most effective in dealing with those special problems inherent in the conditions of poverty; most supported in program rationale by accurate and extensively documented results; and most resourceful in management and professional/paraprofessional staffing patterns. The study has identified the nature and scope of staff ABE training needs. The findings are reflected in a conceptual model for application to three ABE settings: in corrections, in New Careers, and in migrant education. Appendix A, an annotated bibliography, contains 114 items of research and investigation on adult basic education staff training, representative of the literature from 1965 to 1970 of the U.S. as well as other countries.
