Handbook for Teachers of Adults.
Koehler, Lawrence E.
This revised edition of the 1951 bulletin of the California State Department of Education updates materials from the original handbook, includes information from a handbook on inservice teacher training, and adds a brief history of adult education. It should be of practical value to teachers of adults, their supervisors and school administrators. The first chapter provides the history of public school adult education in California. Three chapters cover the curriculum, preparation of an instructional program, and teaching materials. The nature of the adult learner is discussed, and the methods and techniques of teaching adults. A chapter discusses evaluation of the program, staff, and/or students in adult education. Identification, recruitment, and training of teachers of adults is next covered; there is discussion of fringe benefits, such as credentials, tenure, sick leave, and retirement benefits. There is a list of selected references. (eb)
