ABE Outreach: Teacher, Recruiter, Counselor. A Handbook for Adult Basic Education Teacher/Recruiter/Counselors. A Guide for Program Managers. Revised.
Singer, Elizabeth W.
Designed for program managers and teacher/recruiter/counselors (TRC's), this handbook provides information on Brevard Community College's Adult Basic Education (ABE) Outreach program. First, background information on the ABE/TRC concept is presented, identifying the major functions of the TRC as counseling through door-to-door contact, conducting outreach classes in community buildings near the clients to be served, and providing an informal instructional environment suited to adult learner needs. The next sections present information on the development of the ABE Outreach program; needs in setting up an outreach program; characteristics of a TRC; staff training needs; and potential problems. Next, suggestions are offered for locating and orienting TRC's. Then, guidelines are presented for the TRC, including a discussion of requisite personal characteristics and skills, tips for program success, information needed and techniques for recruitment, and sources of information about the community. The bulk of the handbook consists of forms, samples, and fliers, including ABE teacher forms; a TRC job description, job schedule, outreach contact sheet, time log, and follow-up report; ABE student profile sheets and forms; information on adult/community education centers; and sample publicity materials.
