The Summer of 73: An Assessment of the Adult Basic Education Institutes and Supervisors' Conference in Tennessee, 1973.
Gunter, Jeannette; Dutton, Donnie
The report assesses three Adult Basic Education Institutes (one in reading, one in materials, and one in guidance and counseling) and an ABE Supervisors' Conference held in Tennessee during the summer of 1973. Academic credit was given to those of the approximately 30 participants of each Institute who successfully completed the session. Each Institute served as a teacher-training session while the Supervisors' Conference considered administrative matters and familiarized the supervisors with Institute objectives. The Institutes and the Conference were evaluated on the following items: profiles of participants, physical facilities, objectives, program, and overall rating. Both were successful endeavors, and participants felt similar institutes and conferences should be held. Topics were submitted as suggestions for future meetings. (The appendixes contain the program for each Institute and the Conference and a sample evaluation instrument.) (AG)
