A Handbook for Adult Basic Education: Volume 2.
Morrison, Marshall Lee
Volume 2 of the handbook has been designed to supplement the material presented in Volume 1, which was concerned with basic problems associated with the Adult Basic Education (ABE) classroom. Volume 2 aims at a wider audience. Chapter 1 attempts to give a detailed description of the deprived adult learner, and considers such questions as how they are; why they are as they are; and what to do about it. Chapter 2 suggests some methods and means of increasing and improving services to the deprived. Chapters 3 and 4 present some data and arguments favoring public support of adult education. Chapter 5 considers the crucial problem of communicating and interacting with the deprived. Chapters 6 and 7 attempt to make Chapter 2 more extensive, intensive, and protensive by setting forth curriculum practices and suggesting techniques, tools, and trends in ABE. Chapter 7 indicates how the total program in adult education may be improved, unified, and made more continuous through the coordinated efforts of administrators and supervisors in the field. Finally, the appendixes, through a series of position papers, present some thought-provoking subject matter selected from a wide array of scholars considered knowledgeable in the area of adult education.
