Model of Adult Basic Education in Corrections.
Ryan, T. A.; And Others
The document provides a model for planning and evaluating adult basic education (ABE) programs in correctional settings and is also a workbook for its implementation. It requires the use and understanding of systems techniques and concepts. The introduction discusses the rationale for and development of the conceptual model; basic systems, concepts, and principles; and directions for the model's use. The following seven chapters present major functions that must be incorporated into an ABE delivery system. Chapter 1 concerns the conceptualization of the correctional system, describing the real life environment, with ABE programs as an integral part of the system. Chapters 2 through 5, and 7 combine to provide a very detailed model for a management system: establishing a philosophy and assessing needs; defining systems goals, subgoals, and objectives; formulating a plan to implement major goals; and evaluating delivery systems and programs. Chapter 6 constitutes a model for an instructional delivery system. For each element a definition of concept, relation of element or function to the total model and directions to the user are presented. Appended material includes: a 27-page bibliography; a 21-item annotated list of bibliographies of ABE materials; a glossary; names of contributors to the model, resource personnel and advisory committee members; and author and subject indexes.
