Project Update. Final Report.
Indianapolis Public Schools, IN.
The purpose of Project Update was to design and implement resource assistance activities to get 310 special projects into the hands of the adult basic education (ABE) classroom teacher and to provide inservice activities to ABE practitioners in Central Indiana. An advisory committee was established to counsel project personnel. To keep ABE personnel informed of statewide 310 projects and other innovative practices in adult education, these activities were completed: publication and distribution of a description of 310 special projects and a newsletter, workshops, project presentations and/or displays at conferences and workshops for adult educators, and establishment of cooperative relationships with existing resource centers. Other services were implemented to link ABE teachers with information sources and to encourage sharing of ABE ideas and methods, including dissemination of an annotated collection of resources, technical assistance, development of bibliographies relevant to ABE, establishment of an idea bank, and publication of an idea book. (Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the report, include a sample workshop agenda, groups and agencies with which collaborative relationships were established, a sample of the annotated collection of resources, and other sample project materials.)
