PATHWAYS: A Continuum of Reading and Writing Skills.
Lovett, Ollie M.
Developed for use with the PATHWAYS ABE (Adult Basic Education) and Pre-GED (General Educational Development) Curriculum, a scope and sequence of reading and writing skills, or continuum, was designed with tasks of both educator and Indian Adult learner in mind. The continuum introduces individual skills at students' entry proficiency levels and reinforces skills at subsequent levels. A student who displays competency in all the skills listed will be ready to enter a GED-level preparatory program or to function in an office or other urban setting in which reading and writing skills are needed. Intended for Indian students who have reading and writing skill levels ranging from third through eight grade, the continuum is divided into six levels: ABE Levels I-III and Pre-GED Levels I-III with a listing of skills and objectives of lessons in each unit. Before instruction begins, it is recommended that a thorough, reliable skill-referenced test, such as the McGraw-Hill TABE Test, be administered to students. Individual plans of study are then prepared for students using the PATHWAYS ABE and Pre-GED workbooks or commercial materials. The continuum may also be used as a student tracking system by checking off each skill as it is mastered. (ERB)
