Curriculum Development in Adult Basic Education.
Boone, Edgar J.; Quinn, Emily H.
Curriculum development for adult basic education requires the formulation of functional and meaningful educational objectives, the selection and organization of appropriate learning experiences, and the evaluation of educational outcomes. The statement of an objective should identify the learner, the content area, and the desired behavior change, and should be based on studies of undereducated adults and their environment and needs. Learning experiences should be chosen with attention to certain aspects (motivation, self-activity, clarity of objectives, repetition and association, effective relearning, individual differences, participant satisfaction) and must be organized to reinforce each other. Finally, evaluations must be made initially, at succeeding stages, and after the completion of instruction. (The document includes a flow chart and a selected bibliography.) (ly)
