Louisiana Adult Education Staff Development Project: Training Manual. Revised Edition.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.; University of Southwestern Louisiana, Lafayette.
The manual is designed to be used with a basic one-week training program for adult education personnel. It is not intended to guide teachers toward modifying existing programs, piloting new programs, or institutionalizing a new idea. It was designed to help teachers identify the purpose of the typical adult student, to give specific information to resolve some of the important issues, and to expose teachers to certain basic areas of interest, information, and techniques concerning the total adult education program. Individual chapters deal with: the design of the Louisiana staff development project; introduction to the program of adult education in Louisiana; awareness of the under-educated adult and implications for the teacher; developing behavioral objectives for adult learners; individual prescription instruction (three chapters--beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels); the concept of the community school and adult education learning centers; innovative programs of special interest to adult education personnel; problems of major interest to adult education personnel; and adapting the career education concept to adult education. Each chapter after the first begins with an outline of its behavioral objectives, activities, and narrative. Most chapters have short bibliographies and supporting transparencies. (Author/PR)
