A Curriculum Guide for Adult Educators Based on the Adult Performance Level Study.
Basner, Shari; And Others
This curriculum guide was developed in Phase II of a two-phase project designed (1) to develop a model curriculum guide for all adult basic education programs in Rhode Island that reflects the goals and objectives of the Adult Performance Level Study (a study which stressed the need for adult educators to become involved with the concepts of competency-based education, coping skills, life skills, and functional literacy), and (2) to develop a behavioral objectives bank (appendix A) based on the content of the guide. The guide is designed to aid the teacher in using five content areas as the basis for instruction in literacy skills and which are structured around recognizable issues and personal needs of adult students. Introductory information provides suggestions for using the guide at the classroom or individual level, and gives an overview of objectives for each content area. The five content areas, presented in separate sections, are (1) Occupational Knowledge, (2) Consumer Economics, (3) Health, (4) Community Resources, and (5) Government and Law. Objectives and related activities, and a bibliography follow each content area. The Behavioral Objectives Bank and a listing and brief description of audiovisual materials are appended. (WL)
