Training Manual for Experienced ABE/GED Instructors.
Muir, Harry P.; Wischropp, Theodore W.
Intended for adult basic education (ABE) and general educational development (GED) instructors with at least one year of experience, this staff development training manual is designed for use in structured inservice training or as a guide or reference. Its eight chapters, written by practitioners throughout Kansas, cover some of the most important aspects of ABE facing instructors in adult learning centers. In addition to informative materials, chapters may provide worksheets, sample surveys, sample forms, and instrument descriptions. Most chapters also list additional references and resources for further reading. Topics covered in the chapters are (1) survival skills for instructors (time management, stress management, interpersonal relations, adult life cycles, career development, professional development, and professional organizations), (2) intake and counseling (career/life planning and student personal development), (3) assessment (placement, evaluation, prediction, vocational, special populations, and test taking), (4) learning styles (cognitive, affective, physiological, and the application of learning style theory), (5) curriculum integration (academic, vocational, social and daily living skills, and personal skills), (6) techniques in ABE, (7) selected populations (displaced homemakers, handicapped adults, learning disabilities, non-English speaking adults, and older adults), and (8) recordkeeping.
