Teaching Basic Writing Skills to Adults: Introduction.
Johnson, Dell
This publication contains an annotated bibliography of 19 sources of information for instructors of General Educational Development Test (GED) preparation classes and adult basic education classes. An introduction discusses the literature search that identified materials and information to help GED instructors teach adult education, generally, and writing instruction, specifically. It describes the sources and the evaluation of those sources to locate practical suggestions for activities on teaching writing skills or easily understood insights or strategies for teaching adults. The annotated bibliography gives examples of these types of sources: articles, books, student study guides, and organizations. A brief introduction to each type of source offers suggestions for locating more resources. Annotations of print materials, which are in alphabetical order by author, provide this information: author(s), title, publisher and date of publication, pagination, and content summary. Annotations of organizations, arranged alphabetically by name of organization, provide this information: address, telephone number, and description of services. An attachment is a "pathfinder," a shorter version of the annotated bibliography containing fewer annotations. (YLB)
