A Curriculum Guide for the Mid-Alabama Adult and Vocational Education Demonstration Center.
Carson, James E.; Sparks, Peggy F.
An adult basic education curriculum is presented, designed to raise the competencies of adults in the basic areas of oral and written communications, arithmetic, social sciences, occupational planning (including development of occupational concepts and attitudes) and development of self. Basic area skills and activities are presented in three levels: Level I (Grades 0-3), Level II (Grades 4-6), and Level III (Grades 7-9). Content is given in four sections. Section 1 discusses curriculum objectives, the philosophy of adult basic education, and describes learner characteristics of uneducated, "under-informed" and "under-achieving" adults, which are grouped as Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3, respectively. Section 1 also discusses qualities found in a good adult basic education teacher, principles of teaching, and a check-list of danger signs of the adult drop-out. Section 2 provides separate teaching outlines for each of the adult levels in the areas of reading, language arts, and arithmetic. Section 3 provides teaching outlines for the areas of social living, science and life, employment, the needs of everday living, and tips for the consumer. Section 4 includes guidelines for preparation and a bibliography. (WL)
