Good Ideas for Teaching Daily Adult Living.
Leigh, Robert K.
Intended for practicing Adult Basic Education teachers, this handbook provides materials for teaching specific coping skills in the area of daily adult living. Three areas of study are explored: (1) community, which includes organizations, health, nutrition, safety, money management, and media; (2) government and law, which includes citizenship, voting, safety, wills, social security, and levels of government; and (3) occupational knowledge and attitudes, which includes how to get and keep a job, applications, interviews, and employee orientation. Introductory materials include an outline of the areas of study and specific activities and a listing of characteristics of the adult learner. A one-page introduction begins each section on one of the three areas. Each area, designed as a self-contained teaching module, contains several adult-oriented activities (16 in area 1, 6 in area 2, and 7 in area 3) organized in the following format: instructional goal, instructional objective, introduction for teacher, suggested activities, and list of resources. A bibliography is appended. (YLB)
