Teaching the Disadvantaged Adult.
Ulmer, Curtis
This set of instructional guidelines for adult basic education stresses understanding of the characteristics and problems of disadvantaged adults; developing basic communication skills (listening, speaking, writing); selection of instructional materials and equipment; effective classroom techniques for arithmetic and reading instruction; and an adult-centered approach to testing and counseling. Government agencies and other sources of community assistance are suggested as aids to adult basic education teachers in meeting instructional and related needs. Administrative and financial arrangements under Title III of the amended Elementary and Secondary Education Act are outlined. The document concludes by citing evidence of the favorable impact of adult basic education on the disadvantaged. A selected bibliography is also included. (ly)
