A Model for Program Planning in Adult Education.
La Forest, James R.
A model for program planning in adult basic education is presented, the prototype having been produced by 40 coordinators, teachers, and adult learners. It was designed to meet the need, in adult education programs, for stabilization through systematic planning. A systems approach is defined with systems analysis, anasynthesis, and planning included as key concepts. Guidelines for narrative simulation and a 20-page sample narrative are given. One-third of the document is an explanation of the model which describes: the composition of the planning model; relationships and functions in detail; the type of information needed by planners who will use the model; important relationships which were indicated through the use of signal paths; actual use of the model; the planning process as used by teachers; and the planning process as used by administrators. A 20-item bibliography is listed. (SC)
