Cooper, Gloria S.; And Others
This guide and the accompanying student workbook, three audio tape cassettes, and script for the audio tape comprise the Adult Basic Education Level I (grade 1.5) package on the metric system. An introductory section to this guide provides (1) an overview of the materials in the package, and also includes a field tested six-step teaching sequence for making effective use of the materials, and a table coordinating the activities in the level I package; (2) background information on adult basic daily living skills; and (3) a discussion of the design and use of the student workbook and the instructor's guide. Four instructional sections (linear measurement, measurement of weight, measurement of capacity, and measurement of temperature) include learning activities relating to daily living skills, lists of materials needed, information on what the teacher needs to know about the metric system, and additional comments corresponding to learning activities and to pages in the student workbook (where applicable). The remaining sections include review material. Appended are sources of material (complete addresses and ERIC document numbers, where possible) on adult education and/or the metric system; script for the level I student posttest booklet; the level I student posttest booklet; and answers to the student posttest.
