The Homestudy Option. Final Report.
Goss, Barbara
This document contains both a final report and a curriculum guide for the Homestudy Option, a program geared to the 1988 General Educational Development (GED) test. The final report describes two program objectives: (1) providing an adult basic education home study curriculum to rural adults to take the first steps toward educational independence; and (2) reaching many rural students who find educational programs inaccessible. The following project activities are discussed: (1) development of a home study packet containing seven sections, one for each of five GED subjects plus orientation and test-taking units; testing of the packet with 23 students; and dissemination of the project through AdvancE in Pennsylvania. The curriculum guide includes the following sections: orientation; writing; social studies; science; literature and the arts; math; and GED test-taking tips. Each section may include the following: a message to the student; key words and phrases; general information; handouts; questions and answers; "think and write" activities; and examples. (NLA)
