PATHWAYS: An Adult Pre-GED Reading Skills Workbook. Level 1.
Lovett, Ollie M.
Written to prepare the American Indian student entering a General Educational Development (GED) program, the Pre-GED Level I reading skills student workbook of the PATHWAYS Curriculum provides lessons that will teach skills needed to pass the reading and writing sections of the GED examination, along with writing skills for seeking employment. The workbook is divided into four units, each continuing culturally relevant lessons which provide instruction and practice in a skill. Each lesson may contain or describe a myth, legend, religious beliefs and ceremonies, poetry, history, styles of architecture, clothing, dance, music, or art from one of the southwestern tribes, as well as writing exercises, and a unit test. The units of study and lessons presented are: word analysis (prefixes, suffixes, and root words); vocabulary (using context clues, synonyms, antonyms, and homonyms); reading comprehension (identifying the main idea, recognizing supporting details, sequencing in narration, identifying cause and effect, drawing conclusions, distinguishing between fact and opinion, following directions); and study skills (map and graph reading, reading timetables and schedules, summarizing, reading want ads, test-taking skills). The workbook concludes with a glossary, in alphabetical order, of all the terms used. (ERB)
