ABE-in-Industry Handbook. Travis County Adult Basic Education Co-op Special Project.
This guide for adult educators provides a general model for establishing and maintaining Adult Basic Education (ABE)-in-Industry programs. The model encompasses eight components, including the industry program and ABE program. The handbook, however, skips the two programs and begins with the industry and ABE agreement component, devoting a chapter to it and to each subsequent component, namely Needs Assessment, Recruit and Train Personnel, Curriculum Modification, Conduct the Cooperative Program, and Evaluate the Cooperative Program. Each chapter presents a brief discussion of pertinent issues as well as the procedures necessary for that component. Examples of forms and materials, which may be used or modified to meet a particular cooperative program's needs, are included in each chapter. Each chapter ends with a checklist of activities crucial to the component just elaborated. A list of references is included. (YLB)
