Adult Basic Education; A Resource Book of Readings.
Brooke, W. Michael, Ed.
The publication is a collection of relevant readings in adult basic education (ABE), with special emphasis on the Canadian environment. They were selected for their potential value in helping the professional development of all adult basic educators and an attempt was made to re-integrate research and practice in the field. Fourteen articles were written expressly for the collection and 10 are reprinted from leading journals. The following issues are stressed: innovative programs, common classroom concerns, and instructional materials. The overall objective of ABE and its philosophy are also touched upon and many essays deal with the background, the research, and prospects of ABE. The basic questions are raised: Who should be trained? By whom? Toward what ends? And for whose ultimate benefit? Contributors include: M. V. Berry, D. A. Brown, M. Claque, R. W. Cortright, C. V. Davison, G. Dickinson, T. J. Gilligan, R. Godwin, V. L. Hannenberg, A. P. Hayes, J. R. Kidd, J. Kulich, R. G. A. Mackie, I. G. Morrison, A. P. Newman, W. Otto, E. P. Sloan, N. Waite, B. M. Webb, R. M. Williams, and H. C. Zimmerman. (Author/MW)
