PATHWAYS: An Adult Pre-GED Writing Skills Workbook. Level I.
Lovett, Ollie M.
Written to prepare the American Indian student entering a General Educational Development (GED) program, the Pre-GED Level I writing 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 five units, each containing culture based lessons which provide 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: parts of speech (pronouns, nouns, tenses, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and conjunctions); sentence structure (compound subjects and verbs, complete, incomplete, and run-on sentences, subject-verb agreement, verbs used as adjectives); paragraph development (characteristics of a paragraph, descriptive and deductive paragraph writing, sequence and dialogue in narrative writing); punctuation (use of comma, semicolon, quotation marks, apostrophe, hyphen and underlining); and capitalization (use of capitals in abbreviations, titles, organizations, places, languages, races, nationalities, and religions). A glossary completes the workbook. (ERB)
