Adult Basic Education; a Summary of Activities, July 1, 1967-June 1, 1968.
Brady, Henry G., Jr.
The population dealt with in this report comprises educationally disadvantaged people 18 years of age or over, who have not completed eight years of formal schooling. These fall in the following categories: illiterate, semi-illiterate, unemployed, and underemployed. The summary of the work done by the Department of Adult Education of Florida State University (July 1, 1967 - June 1, 1968) reflects the theoretical principles set out in The Adult Basic Education Curriculum and its Development, published by the same institution. Consequently, the emphasis is on literacy training as well as preparation of the individual for playing his many roles (parent, consumer, worker, citizen), in adult life. In this process, the training institute concentrated on the development of awareness of, and sensitivity toward, undereducated adults; development of individual kits by teachers; and attention to problems such as recruiting, retention, testing, evaluation, curriculum, and development. (An extensive bibliography for directed individual study in adult basic education is included.) (nl)
