[Navajo Adult Basic Education: Final Report. 1972-1973.]
Navajo Community Coll., Tsaile, AZ.
The ultimate goal of the Navajo Adult Basic Education (NABE) program is to make the participants responsible parents so they may partake in community affairs and re-evaluate their own family affairs. The final report surveys the program's specific objectives and evaluates the year's progress toward achieving them. Major accomplishments of the year, such as educational field trips, the development of a curriculum relevant to the Navajo life experience, employment of students through arts and crafts classes, civic education and voter registration, and the development of a language program for Navajos who do not speak English, are cited. Most of the NABE instructors are untrained and uncertified; weekly inservice training in methodology, techniques, and human relations is therefore vital to the program. The evaluation portion of the document is comprised of a progress report of eight pages listing specific behavioral objectives in the curricular areas of reading and language, mathematics, social changes, and attitude, with the total number of students participating, and the number able and the number not able to demonstrate the learning. Sex, employment, income, and age data, represented graphically, complete the report. (AJ)
