The purpose of this curriculum guide is to assist Training Specialists in teaching Adult Basic Education/General Educational Development (ABE/GED) students basic skills in language arts and mathematics. The guide begins with an introduction (purpose, overview, adult learner characteristics, teacher type), curriculum policies, curriculum structure, teaching adult literacy students, and methods of teaching reading. Brief descriptions of course focuses and listings of specific objectives precede course materials. Materials are provided for courses at the first-grade level (101-104) and second-grade level (201-204) for language arts and mathematics. The general (course) objective appears first. The course materials, provided in columnar form, correlate specific objectives with teaching/learning activities and supplementary exercises (correlated by exercise number to the three student supplementary exercise books to be used with this curriculum.) Appendixes include a sight and functional word list, samplings of internal and external materials and resources, and a five-page bibliography. (YLB)
