Adult Basic Education Program Guidelines.
Shelby County Schools, Memphis, TN.; Memphis City School System, TN.
Guidelines for the Memphis-Shelby County Adult Education Program were created to: aid in evaluating the city's present program; provide a curriculum guide; make suggestions to new teachers; and provide information for future improvements and evaluation. There are three levels: Level 1 focuses on reading, writing, and arithmetic in the fundamental stages; level 2 tries to facilitate the needs of older and younger adults, and also initiates social skills. Level 3 is designed to improve as well as extend the educational and social skills. This instructional level is geared toward preparing adult students for the ninth grade classification through the GED test or to improve general education. The evening high school program is described in terms of philosophy, staff, faculty, curriculum, operation eligibility, attendance requirements, veterans, and the GED test. Information on the three major divisions of counseling (individual, group, case) is given. Included also are suggestions for new teachers; discussion of the evaluation of ABE materials; samples of registration card, monthly report form, and guidance sheet; a list of referral agencies; and a reading list for professionals.
