Behavioral Skills for Adult Basic Education: A Resource Document and Institute Report.
Seaman, Don F.; And Others
A report on the Adult Basic Education teacher-training institute held at Mississippi State University, July 21-August 8, 1969, contains edited presentations of several of the instructional consultants, the contents of the final reports of the four work-study groups, and the results of an extensive evaluation of the institute. Areas covered were: the disadvantaged adult; the adult learner; utilizing andragogy methods to meet adult needs; sociology of the undereducated adult; implications for program development in adult basic education (ABE); teaching reading, and selecting materials in ABE; and guidance and counseling in ABE. Work-study groups report on family living, language arts, mathematics, and reading. Included also are: the biographical characteristics of participants, pre-and post-test data, and participant evaluations. General implications are based on observations from the data and the institute. An appendix lists the institute staff, and gives the training schedule and the raw score differences. (nl)
