Allan, Susan K.
Project IMAGES (Improving Management of Adults/Guiding and Educating Staff) was conducted throughout Pennsylvania to provide two three-hour training sessions for the special needs of both experienced and inexperienced staff of adult basic education programs. Instruction was given in the counseling areas of age variance management and the importance of test-taking skills for increasing success on tests. The following four activities were carried out during the project: (1) research, consultation, and organization to develop workshop materials relevant to adult development, effective communication techniques, group dynamics, and classroom management; (2) development of teacher packets to be used in the workshop presentations; (3) conducting workshop sessions for experienced and inexperienced classroom teachers, counselors, and administrators of adult basic education programs throughout the state; and (4) project evaluation, conducted through questionnaires distributed following each workshop and which provided positive feedbacks. The major product developed through the project was the Teachers' Workshop Package; major topics covered in the packages include theoretical considerations, counseling and guidance, how adults learn, techniques of management, and instructional methods. Forms and handouts used in the workshops are included in the report. (KC)
