Student Taught Adult Basic Literacy Efforts. Final Report.
Council of the Southern Mountains, Inc., Berea, KY.
The purpose of the Student Taught Adult Basic Literacy Efforts (STABLE) project was the involvement of adult illiterates, functional illiterates, and educational dropouts who do not take advantage of other educational and vocational training opportunities in basic education, using mature college students as teachers. Thirty students were trained to work in teams in 19 communities. The project successfully demonstrated that rural people who need basic education can be involved through a person-to-person approach and by using imaginative methods of teaching. Of the 175 participants in the project, 49% made good or fair progress as compared with 11% who did not show significant progress. In addition, services were provided to meet basic needs in areas of practical education, such as community agency referrals, job information, and other educational opportunities. Additional training for STABLE teachers was indicated and has been incorporated into the current program. (Pages 50, 51, 53, 54, and part of 68 will not reproduce because of illegibility.)
