Project MAPP. The Vocabulary Booklet # 1. Implementing the Instructional Program: A Competency-Based Adult Education Learning System.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
This booklet is intended to help adults master the basic and life skill vocabulary needed to meet the simple communication demands of daily life. It is designed to assist adult basic education (ABE) teachers in the implementation of a competency-based learning system that emphasizes the integration of basic and life skills learning. The booklet provides resources to assist learners in recognizing, expanding, using, and applying relevant vocabulary. Part I provides an overview of the booklet, an article on the role of vocabulary in reading comprehension, and guidelines to facilitate vocabulary development. Part II contains four types of resources: Life Skills Word Lists, Word Patterns Lists, a Sight Vocabulary List, and 50 Vocabulary Activities. The Life Skills Word Lists vocabulary for over 30 life skill competencies, categorized under five general areas: consumer economics, community resources, health, occupational knowledge, and government and law. All vocabulary listed is identified as appropriate for Level I or Level II adult learners. The Word Patterns Lists keys over 100 word pattern lists to life skill vocabulary. The Sight Vocabulary List is the Dolch list of 200 words that are the most basic and/or do not follow phonetic patterns. The 50 Nifty Vocabulary Activities are a series of activities that can be used with most of the life skills, word patterns, or sight vocabulary lists. Copy-ready graphics that complement various activities are provided. (YLB)
