Analysis of Seven Special Projects in Adult Basic Education. Final Report.
General Electric Co., Washington, DC. TEMPO.
This report summarizes innovations being developed in seven special adult basic education (ABE) projects: the Washington, D.C. ABE Demonstration Center; Opportunities Industrialization Center pupil recruitment and Adult Armchair Education projects in Philadelphia; Laborers' International Union participation in ABE in Columbus, Ohio; Southwest Cooperative Educational Laboratory televised English instruction in New Mexico for functionally illiterate, transient Mexican Americans; training in adult guidance and counseling by the University of Texas; job related ABE learning centers in Arkansas; and the Morehead State University (Kentucky) ABE demonstration project for the 13 state Appalachia region. Project elements of national significance are identified, and the project settings are described to enable potential users to judge whether they can use paraprofessionals, computer assisted instruction, or other specific innovations. A framework for project review is offered, followed by conclusions and recommendations on classification, project initiation, supervision, information dissemination, implementation of innovations, reporting, and evaluation.
