Choctaw Adult Education, Volume II. (A 309(B) Demonstration Project) Final Report.
Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, Philadelphia.
Commercial materials were used extensively by the Choctaw Adult Education Program. Instructional Materials were, however, developed to meet specified needs which were not dealt with to the staff and students' satisfaction in the available commercial materials. Instructional units which were amenable to the students' interest, needs, and culture were developed. Teacher-made materials were not used until the teacher felt quite certain that an appropriate level of readiness existed among the students. These lessons were designed so that they could be adapted to any group within the classes and could be presented by either the paraprofessionals or professionals on the staff. Once a unit was prepared, its contents were presented to the entire staff via an in-service training session so that each staff member could disseminate the information as he chose. Four teacher-made units are given in this volume: (1) Food Buying, (2) Nutrition Micro Courses, (3) Taste Party, and (4) Money Management. Also included are a listing of commercial materials used and sample forms of the recruiter's survey, student folder information, attendance sheets, and certificates of the General Educational Development (GED), 8th grade, and driver's education. A description of the GED test and how it may be administered locally is provided. (NQ)
