Improving State Administered Adult Education Services in the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. Final Report, Fiscal Year 1975.
Tuck, Betty H.
The project was an effort to investigate local leadership structures and issues related to government, and to develop out of this a curriculum for teaching English to Micronesian adults. The process involved (1) gathering data (recorded adult perceptions of government functioning) by a writer traveling throughout all of the local districts and (2) workshops for Adult Basic Education (ABE) teacher training specialists to further develop and translate the materials. Throughout the process, materials were continually exchanged with the local districts for review. An attempt was made to develop simple materials in the beginning to motivate learners to complete the second section of the course, Government Structure. Stories in the student reader are printed in nine languages. The staff felt that they successfully put together relevant teaching materials (14 publications or filmstrips including reference and Federal program lists). The bulk of the document consists of excerpts from the developed teacher's guide and student reader, illustrating the contents and the manner in which the materials could be used. Appended are workshop agendas, a map of the Trust Territory, a list of cooperating agencies, names and addresses of ABE specialists, and the participant characteristics form for adult education teacher training projects.
