Research, statewide evaluation, and student followup studies have indicated that students in adult basic education and English as a second language classes learn more when they are in classrooms in which the teachers practice the following participatory learning principles: establish a learning-centered classroom, personalize instruction, relate learning activities to each learner's experiences, assess students' needs, build a friendly and informal climate, participate in the learning process, and encourage flexibility for personal growth and development.
