A Learning Center Approach to Learning in Adult Basic Education.
Wright, Wynn D.; And Others
This study is designed to give a brief, descriptive look at the Learning Center in Adult Basic Education. Some philosophical orientation, considered to be a reflection of the current thinking of many serious adult educators regarding their objectives in implementing a learning center literacy program, is included. The Learning Center for Adult Basic Education incorporates team teaching, individualized instruction, and a wide variety of materials, including programmed hardware and software. It also includes experiences to acquaint the student with his cultural heritage, knowledge of his community, and ways in which he may help to shape his community life. Some of the broad objectives of the Center are: (1) to advance each adult student as far as possible in the available time; (2) to enable students to gain skills and understandings commensurate with backgrounds in reading, communication, and other areas; and (3) to allow the students to develop an awareness of their needs and desires for continuing education. Testing and evaluation currently in use in learning centers differ in length, types and approaches. Auxiliary services include health services and child day care. A bibliography is included. (CK)
