Career Education for Adults: Government and Law.
Auburn Univ., AL. Dept. of Vocational and Adult Education.; Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery. Div. of Adult Basic Education.
An outgrowth of State-sponsored institutes conducted by Auburn University, Alabama, to produce career education teaching modules for adults, the government and law module is one of five field-tested curriculum guides adopted from findings of the nationally oriented Adult Performance Level Study conducted at the University of Texas. (Basic to the Texas study was the defining of general areas of need for effective livelihood in American society.) The primary instructional objective of the government and law module is "to promote an understanding of society through government and law and to be aware of governmental functions, agencies, and regulations which define individual rights and obligations." A designator coding system identifies performance objectives with a corresponding series of learning tasks or enabling objectives; separate columns list related instructor activity, learner activity, and resources. Basic skill areas emphasized are communication skills, problem solving techniques, and interpersonal relationships. Topic coverage includes: vocabulary related to government and law; relationship between the individual citizen and the government; technical functioning of government and the relationship of the individual and the legal system; and governmental role in regulating economic activities of society and the American tax system. (A 1-page bibliography lists additional resources.) (EA)
