Adult Basic Education Teacher Training in Measurement/Diagnosis of Learning and Teaching Reading and Math. Final Report.
Boggs, David L.
The report describes a workshop for adult basic education teachers in Ohio which utilized the teacher training television series, "Basic Education: Teaching the Adult." Responses from teachers identified the two clusters of content presented: (1) measurement/diagnosis of student learning and individualized instruction, and (2) teaching reading and math and selection and use of materials. A structure for individualizing the experience for participants is described. Resource persons developed the following procedures for the workshop: viewing and discussion of a few relevant television lessons (selected for each cluster), formulation of individual written learning objectives by participants, discussion of the objectives with a resource person, and use of the objectives in planning special sessions. A summary of the television lessons used in each cluster and lists of some of the learning objectives formulated by participants are included in the report. An outline of the special session topics and learning experiences for each cluster is provided. A summary of the participant evaluation of the workshop concludes the report. Appended material (14 pages) includes: a roster of participants, instructions, staff, schedule, the Albany learning lab training package, a discussion guide for film: "The Sound of My Own Name," and the evaluation questionnaire.
