Project on Teaching Charts and Graphs to ABE Students. Part I: Teacher's Guide [and] Part II: Transparency Assembly Package.
Renton Vocational Inst., WA.
The teacher's guide and collection of transparency masters are designed for use in teaching adult basic education (ABE) students how to read and interpret graphs and charts. Covered in the individual lessons of the instructional unit are the reading and interpretation of charts as well as picture, line, bar, and circle graphs. Each unit contains a detailed lesson plan that includes instructions for presenting the vocabulary and mathematical concepts addressed in three separate graphs or charts, a student worksheet along with instructions for its presentation, and an answer key for the worksheet. Throughout the instructional unit, graphs and charts are presented that deal with such relevant topics as taxes, alcohol intake, jobs, earnings, population growth, government spending, clothing sizes, and comparison shopping for computers and checking accounts. The transparency masters include a series of picture, bar, line, and circle graphs and charts dealing with such topics as the number of farms in the United States, the effects of alcohol on the body, tax exemptions, oil consumption, jobs in Washington State, the distribution of earnings in the United States, monthly rainfall, the prison population, household income, government income, government spending, sizes of sweat pants, a comparison of computers, and budget deficits. A brief discussion of procedures for displaying transparency masters and suggestions for presenting these particular transparency masters are provided. (MN)
