Followup Materials Development. Monograph No. 4. Literacy Curriculum and Materials Development. Portfolio of Literacy Materials. Series I: Four Monographs.
Thirumalai, M. S.
This monograph, one of four in a series, contains materials on a particular aspect of literacy training. Developed from reports, papers, and case studies from the Regional Literacy Workshop (November 29-December 20, 1979) held in Udaipur, India, the monographs are suggested for use in training programs for literacy personnel as background materials, an exercise in materials production, or a course of lectures. This monograph focuses on development of followup materials for adult literacy programs. The need for followup materials and the functions and objectives of such materials are discussed. Concepts and principles of followup materials are then addressed, including the role of followup materials in adult literacy programs, types of materials, and the language factor in the production of followup materials. The process of developing materials is considered in terms of the agencies for the development of followup materials, media available for material development, advantages and disadvantages of television and radio, need analysis and problem identification, draft formulation, audiovisual materials, and materials testing. Research, evaluation, and followup activities are also discussed. Sample followup materials are appended. (YLB)
