Adult Basic Education Sourcebook: Answers to Questions Commonly Asked by ABE/GED Instructors.
Amstutz, Donna D.
This manual suggests solutions to frequent questions of adult basic education (ABE) and General Educational Development (GED) teachers. The sourcebook is organized into six major sections. The first section, General Questions, includes a potpourri of questions. The other five categories are Reading, English, Mathematics, Social Studies/Science, and Special Clientele. A problem solving approach is used in the format. Each question has some or all of the following components: (1) "Background": information for those instructors who lack a background in the fundamentals of teaching reading, math, or English; (2) "Suggested Activities": instructional approaches relevant to the particular problem addressed; (3) "Suggested Materials": a guide to appropriate materials with names of publishing companies; and (4) "Teacher Reference": professional materials which provide more definitive answers or suggest other resources for exploration. A list of publishers and their addresses are found in Appendix D. (CSS)
