Competency-Based Adult Education: A Guide to Classroom Management.
Guglielmino, Lucy M.; And Others
Developed as part of a 310 Special Demonstration and Teacher Training Project undertaken at Brevard Community College in 1984-85, this training guide for new Competency-Based Adult Education (CBAE) teachers offers information on the CBAE concept, individualized instruction, selection of instructional materials, student orientation, and procedures. First, introductory material provides background on the CBAE project at Brevard and the rationale for the development of the training guide. Next, the guide explains the characteristics of CBAE, presenting it as an efficient and effective response to the need for individualized instruction of adult learners, and a solution to the problems created by open entry, open exit programs. The next sections describe the arrangement of CBAE instructional packages, suggest steps in orienting students to CBAE instruction, and offer guidance on the management and storage of instructional materials and tests. Suggestions regarding testing and record keeping are followed by an explanation of procedures related to the final grade, course credit, attendance, co-enrollment of regular high school students, and student placement. Finally, hints are presented on instructional methods, classroom techniques, problem students, and practices to avoid. Appendices provide samples of various forms, learning guides, a CBAE learning contract, learning laboratory guidelines, and information sheets. (EJV)
