Preparation of Problem Oriented Learning Materials: Experimental Project: Farmers Functional Literacy Programme.
Deleon, Asher, Ed.
Using practical problems faced by farmers developing new agricultural methods, a problem-oriented approach to adult functional literacy was developed and tested in the Jaipur district. The booklet explains the first two of the project's five phases: exploration, syllabus and curriculum construction, materials preparation, action, and evaluation. The exploratory phase investigated the problems and needs of the farmers; the booklet explains the nature of the survey team, survey procedures, the findings of the survey, the findings of a linguistic survey, and the identification of the most common and most crucial of the problems. For the second phase, the booklet lists the remedial measures adopted and provides some necessary background information on specific farming practices. The individual units of the syllabus are listed and coordinated with the agricultural calendar. Appendixes reproduce some of the survey tools, a word list (in Hindi), and the agricultural calendar.
