ABE Teaching/Learning Management System. Final Report.
Monroe County Community Schools Corp., Bloomington, IN.
A project was conducted to develop and refine an adult basic education (ABE) teaching/learning management system called CUBE (Continuity and Unity in Basic Education). (The CUBE system--a diagnostic/prescriptive system for individualizing competency based learning for students in ABE--provides a flexible and complete system of instruction for ABE students in the content areas of reading, math, English, and vocabulary; instruction on the topic of learning disabilities and the adult learner; and a system for complete program management.) Objectives of the program were to refine the goals of the system and package the materials, to conduct five regional workshops on the system, and to implement the system in four local ABE programs. These objectives were completed successfully in the following manner: (1) instructional materials in each of the four content areas were revised and organized into color-coded notebooks; (2) also developed were instructional and program administration manuals; (3) with the aid of project staff who made on-site visits, four local programs implemented the system; and (4) a series of regional meetings were conducted and resulted in additional requests for implementation of the system. (The project-developed materials and manuals are available separately--see note.) (MN)
