Supplemental Instructional Resources. BASICS: Bridging Vocational and Academic Skills.
Veach, June P.; And Others
This guide for teachers identifies sources of basic skills instructional print materials available for use with secondary-level vocational students. It is part of BASICS, a package of integrated materials developed to assist teachers, administrators, and counselors in bridging vocational and academic skills. It has four major chapters. The "Identifying Resources" chapter describes the national, state and regional information systems and networks that are available to assist teachers in identifying and locating instructional materials and resources. The "Analyzing Resources" chapter explains how instructional materials can be analyzed to draw out basic skills content and provides an example of such an analysis. The "Resources" chapter lists 182 student resources appropriate for supplementing basic skills instruction and learning. Each resource provides the title, author(s), and publisher. The chapter has four sections. The first lists 76 mathematics resources, grouped by general mathematics and occupational related mathematics. The second lists 22 communication resources for supplementing reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. In the other basic skills resources section, 30 resources focus on areas other than mathematics and communication. The adult basic education resources section lists 54 resources developed for adult basic education learners. They are included because of their appeal to older secondary students. The last chapter contains an alphabetical list of 77 publishers and their addresses. (YLB)
