A program for adult basic education is presented. The general concepts underlying this program are that the teacher will review material covered in the preceding lessons and will be reminded of the overall purpose of the instructional package. Behavioral objectives of the program are: (1) The teacher will take the second diagnostic self-test for personal evaluation; and (2) The teacher will be able to list the more salient points covered in the preceding lessons. Factors which were considered in the conduct of this program include: (1) Attendance is voluntary and determined by a practical motive; (2) The adult is an impatient learner; (3) The adult must acquire and retain a high degree of self-confidence and must have a feeling of success to a far greater degree than children; and (4) The adult has handicaps which he must overcome--physiological changes, psychological handicaps of prejudice, set patterns and habits, fatigue resulting from a full day's work prior to class. Materials used included six transparencies, one audio tape, and one diagnostic self-test. Activities included: (1) The teacher will view the transparencies and listen to the tape; and (2) The teacher will take and score the diagnostic self-test. The self-test will comprise the evaluation.
