Adult Basic Literacy Curriculum and Resource Guide.
Dickinson, Gary; And Others
This guide provides teachers and administrators with one way of structuring the basic skills component of an adult basic literacy program and with an annotated bibliography of instructional materials. The curriculum guide discusses an integrated approach to basic literacy and presents case studies illustrating the process. A short bibliography of professional resources follows. The next nine sections, each of which focuses on one basic skill, are structured to provide teachers with suggestions for using an integrated approach. Sections cover these skill areas: interpersonal, listening, speaking, viewing, reading, writing, spelling, learning, and mathematics. In each section, the goal and specific skills are listed. Page numbers of suitable instructional materials in the resource guide are cited. The resource guide contains an annotated bibliography of over 200 instructional materials arranged alphabetically within nine sections corresponding to the skill areas. Annotations follow this format: title, author, publisher, distributor, readability, pages, approximate price, special features, and comments. The next section lists government departments, community agencies, institutions, and other sources and describes resource materials available from them. Following a directory of publishers and distributors is an appended survey containing a bibliography of leisure reading materials for adults with lower reading levels. (YLB)
