Adult Basic Education Communication Skills Institute. June 21, 1971-July 16, 1971; Followup to August 31, 1972. Final Report.
Arizona State Univ., Tempe.
The document is a collection of materials related to a four-week summer institute for the training of teachers of disadvantaged and/or Spanish surname adults. The focus of the program was communication skills, primarily the teaching of reading and of English as a second language. A secondary emphasis was on training teachers to develop flexible curricula for the target population. In addition, a week-long interaction analysis workshop was conducted to aid teachers in evaluating teaching effectiveness. A brief introduction indicating the scope of the program is followed by a five-page calendar of activities, an indication of materials and equipment utilized, and an estimated expenditure report. A section on evaluation concludes the main text; it records participants' comments and lists their suggestions for future institutes. The larger part of the document is comprised of appendixes; approximately half of these are such related materials as correspondence, application and evaluation forms, and news releases. Of special interest are the remainders of the appended materials, which constitute a supplement to the syllabus: half-a-dozen sample lesson plans and miscellaneous suggestions; and a 30-page listing of materials useful to the teacher of adults, with a 4-page directory of publishers.
