Learning Information for Effective Living. Reading Modules Based on Adult Performance Level Studies. Consumer Economics--Community Resources. Bulletin 1976, No. 18.
Smith, Jo; Walden, Bobbie L.
Written to provide the adult basic education teacher with practical low level reading materials based on the Adult Performance Level (APL) goals and objectives, these modules on consumer economics and community resources have the following goals for students: (1) To manage a family economy and to demonstrate an awareness of sound purchasing principles and (2) to understand that community resources, including transporation systems, are utilized by individuals in society in order to obtain a satisfactory mode of living. Both modules begin with a list of performance objectives for the goal. Then each objective is broken down into several tasks (enabling objectives) with directions for student activities and exercises that are correlated with a specific reading skill. A cross reference list of tasks and reading skills and a list of resource materials are provided for each module. Learning activities include diagrams, illustrated reading materials, written exercises, and projects on a zero to fifth grade reading level. (HD)
