Handbook for Trade-Related Curriculum Development in a Cooperative Adult Basic Education Program in Industry.
Felton, Mimi Edge
Designed as a how-to guide in initiating, developing, and operating an adult basic education program in industry, referred to as Cooperative Adult Basic Education (CABE), this handbook is based on experience gained during the development of the in-plant adult basic education program at Planters, the Planter's Employee Training Program (PET). The term "trade-related curriculum" is defined in the first section. Provided next is a rationale for developing a trade-related curriculum, followed by a discussion of who should be involved in developing it. The next two sections contain guidelines for identifying and incorporating trade terminology and trade math. Utilizing the trade-related curriculum is the subject of the final section. A glossary and references follow. A total of 26 appendixes include such items as student charts and record sheets, word lists, abbreviations/symbols, signs, math drills and tests, and trade terminology. (MN)
