An Institute for 100 Teachers of Spanish-Surnamed Adult ABE Students in the New Dimensions of Education.
Price, Shelby L.
The three-week institute covered five primary areas of instruction: English as a second language, behavioral objectives, individualized instruction-programmed materials, cultural awareness and sensitivity, and curriculum development and adaptation. Participants in the institute were teachers of Adult Basic Education from across the United States. In addition to this general introduction, the report includes a list of institute participants, responsiblities of the professional staff (director, assistant director, general consultant, technical assistant, and liaison), and a 10-page daily calendar of the institute's instructional program. A followup of the institute took the form of winter and spring conferences where institute participants returned completed questionnaires and exchanged further ideas. The general opinion of the participants was that the institute was excellent and another group could benefit from another institute. The questionnaire, with percent of participants responding indicated, and a brief budget allocation review are also included. (AG)
