Cooperative Project in Adult Basic Education for Wyoming, 1968-69.
Jensen, Glenn; And Others
Major elements of this cooperative training project by the University of Wyoming will be a Federally funded 1969 summer institute (the third in a series) for 35 administrators of adult basic education (ABE) in Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Montana, and Idaho; a year-round demonstration library and center for ABE materials and equipment; a regional system of two-day inservice training seminars for ABE teachers and administrators, with national, state, and local involvement by interested parties; and program evaluation using pretests and posttests of attitudes on principles of adult learning and teaching, a 50-item questionnaire, and the Kropp-Verner Attitude Scale. Such steps as more intensive teacher training programs, undergraduate opportunities for teacher preparation, use of a full-time, qualified ABE coordinator, planner, and teacher, and an experimental adult high school program beginning in the fall of 1970, have been recommended. (The document includes the seminar agenda, the attitude scale, evaluation forms for administrator workshops, seminar discussion topics, a curriculum outline, and statistical data on attitudes of summer participants.)
