Career Education for Adults: Community Resources Module.
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 community resources 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 community resources module is "to understand that community resources are utilized by individuals in society in order to obtain a satisfactory mode of living, and that community resources are maintained so that society as a whole may be preserved; and to understand transportation systems and their relation to public problems." 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: familiarity with Federal/State/local services and agencies; transportation signs, symbols, and schedules; map use; transportation fares and overnight accommodations; and transportation and public problems. (A 3-page bibliography lists additional resources.) (EA)
