Adult Basic Education in New Mexico. Personal Growth Curriculum. Revised.
New Mexico State Dept. of Education, Santa Fe. Adult Basic Education Unit.
The revised curriculum guide was first published in 1968 as a result of a workshop conducted for New Mexico's most experienced and qualified adult basic education teachers and administrators. The five general subject areas covered in the text are: Family life, health education, the world of work, money management, and citizenship and government. An introduction and statement of objectives for each area are followed by units on specific subjects. Objectives and suggested activities for topics within the unit are presented. A vocabulary list and/or bibliography are usually included. Emphasis throughout the guide is on student participation in topics of interest to them rather than on the mastery of subject content. Activities, including pretests, case studies, and visits by resource persons, are generally designed to stimulate thinking and discussion. (RG)
