PATHWAYS: Implementation Handbook.
Affiliation of Arizona Indian Centers, Inc., Phoenix.
Written for teachers and program directors of Indian adult education programs who will use PATHWAYS curriculum for instruction of basic reading and writing skills, the handbook includes a number of considerations vital to the implementation of the curriculum. The first section focuses on understanding the Native American adult learner by recognizing individual learning styles, helping students establish educational goals, providing an over-all picture of the educational process and possible problems that may be encountered, and getting to know the students. The three components (a continuum of reading and writing skills, pre-GED reading and writing skills workbook, and teacher's guide) of the PATHWAYS curriculum are described in detail in the second section. The next three sections recommend methods for diagnosis, placement, and evaluation; outline suggested classroom management techniques; and provide a record-keeping system. Suggestions for effective teaching in an adult education setting, ranging from program management to the actual delivery of instruction and retention of students, are offered in the final section. Forms for recording student placement and progress conclude the handbook. (ERB)
