Lovett, Ollie M.
Written to prepare the American Indian student entering a General Educational Development (GED) program, the Pre-GED Level II reading skills student workbook of the PATHWAYS Curriculum provides lessons that will teach skills needed to pass the reading and writing sections of the GED examination, along with writing skills for seeking employment. The workbook is divided into four units, each containing a culture-based lesson which provides instruction and practice in a skill. Each lesson may contain a myth, legend, religious beliefs and ceremonies, poetry, history and information on styles of architecture, clothing, dance, music, or art from one of the southwestern tribes, as well as writing exercises, and a unit test. The units of study and lessons presented are: word analysis (prefixes, suffixes, and root words); vocabulary (using context clues, synonyms, antonyms, and homonyms); comprehension (identifying the main idea, identifying cause and effect, drawing conclusions, distinguishing between fact and opinion, following directions); and study skills (map and graph reading, reading timetables, and schedules, summarizing and skimming, parts of newspaper and reading want ads, and test taking skills). A glossary of all the terms used concludes the workbook. (ERB)
