Publishing an Anthology of Adult Student Writing: A Partnership for Literacy.
Lincoln Intermediate Unit No. l2, New Oxford, PA.
The main objectives of this project were to conduct a writing contest for adult basic education/high school equivalency/English as a Second Language (ABE/GED/ESL) and basic literacy students and to publish an anthology of selected prose (fiction and non-fiction) and poetry entries by those students. Secondary objectives were to promote a greater public awareness of ABE/basic literacy programs and to encourage cross-membership and involvement of adult and K-college English teachers. During the year-long project, guidelines were drawn up, and rules and procedures were distributed to adult education teachers throughout Pennsylvania. Staff training activities were also initiated, and combined training with regular K-college teachers was encouraged. An evaluation process with several stages was also set up and put into practice. Next, the format and the layout of the anthology were determined and the book was printed and distributed. This report is a step-by-step description of the anthology project. Extensive appendixes to the report contain the following items: rules and guidelines, evaluative criteria for judging student writing, cover letter, student consent form, anthology postscript, anthology preface, annotated bibliography, model of the writing process, narrative of a teacher's experience with a writing project, a list of participating programs and staff members, and samples of public relations material generated by or received from the project.
