Adult Basic Education Instructional Materials Guide.
Johnson, Bill, Ed.
This Adult Basic Education (ABE) instructional materials guide was prepared by faculty members of Des Moines Area Community College to provide information about instructional materials in reading, language, and mathematics to teachers in ABE, General Educational Development, and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. Each entry in the guide describes a text or worktext in terms of its identity, format, content, applicability, and level or category. Additionally, objective evaluative comments are included to allow the user to make decisions about the suitability of individual materials. Entries in the guide are grouped in major sections by area (reading, language, mathematics, ESL). Within each major section, the entries are grouped by level or category, with an explanation of these levels and categories given in the introduction to each section. Entries are arranged alphabetically by publisher within each section. An index is included at the end of the guide to enable instructors to locate materials for specific skills or topics. Each entry is keyed to the index by number. This guide is not intended to be comprehensive but is intended to be used in the pre-selection of instructional materials to serve the needs of various students and teachers. (Author/JDS)
