Literacy Instructor Training (LIT-TV). Final Report.
Newman, Anabel P.; Parer, Michael S.
The ABE/LD-TV (Or LIT-TV) program consists of three color television films and a handbook; its need was shown by an assessment of adult basic education (ABE) programs throughout Indiana which revealed that the majority of adult education workers had unclear and conflicting ideas about learning disabilities in adults. Throughout the development and production stages of the materials there was constant and intensive formative evaluation, including expert appraisal before shooting, storyboarding of films at various stages of development, expert reappraisal of refined materials, and a field evaluation of both completed storyboards and the total prototype instructional materials. The materials were evaluated for visual attractiveness, freshness and originality of approach, appeal to adults, and the degree to which they assumed a high level of motivation among the audience. In the dissemination phase of the project, LIT-TV workshops were conducted with literacy volunteers, ABE educators, and librarians from around the state, and the materials were made available to local workshops statewide. Evaluation results indicate that responses to this program from participants has been favorable. (Appendixes constitute more than half of the document and include materials related to program background, target populations, needs analysis, design, development and production, information dissemination, and evaluation.)
