Improving Basic Skills: Volume II--A Collection of National Programs and Resources for Improving the Basic Skills of Undereducated Youth and Adults.
Dougherty, Barbara, Ed.; Novak, Jan, Ed.
This publication describes basic skills improvement programs and activities ongoing throughout the United States. The guide is organized into two sections. The first section contains program descriptions and hands-on materials from 25 elementary and secondary programs across the nation that have been selected for inclusion in the National Diffusion Network (NDN). (NDN is an organization of primarily school-based programs that have been approved for nationwide dissemination by the federal Joint Dissemination Review Panel.) The program descriptions have been excerpted from "Educational Programs That Work," a catalog prepared for the NDN/Department of Education. For each program described, the following information is provided: target audience, description, evidence of effectiveness, implementation requirements, services available, and contact person's name, address, and telephone number. In addition, materials used in the programs are included. The second section contains a collection of information on national organizations that are working toward combating functional illiteracy among adults. A description of services provided, available resources, and sample materials are included for selected organizations. (KC)
