Institutes in Adult Basic Education; Three Week Institute for Training Experienced Teachers to Teach Standard English to Adults with an Education Equivalency of Eighth Grade or Less (A TESOL Project). Final Report.
Wisconsin Univ., Milwaukee. Dept. of Language Labs.
Two three-week institutes in adult basic education, with emphasis on teaching English to speakers of other languages or dialects, were held at the University of Wisconsin in the summer of 1969. The institutes attempted to train and upgrade a number of culturally and linguistically sophisticated language teachers for adult basic education so that their skills would help remove the barriers hindering adults having an eighth-grade education or less whose linguistic backgrounds differ from those of speakers of standard American English. This document reports on the purpose, curriculum, curricular resources, additional sessions, speakers and consultants, dissemination of research and materials, recommendations, and conclusions and results of these institutes. Additional information consists of recruitment forms, instructional staff materials, various schedules, and lists of instructional staff and participants. (JM)
