Development of Linkage Models for Cooperative Planning & Service Delivery to Adult Education Handbook.
Suhanin, William R.
This guide for administrators provides a model for linking adult basic education (ABE) programs--ABE, general educational development (GED), and English as a second language (ESL)--with a broad range of human service agencies. The linkage model depicts a process that is divided into three phases. Three chapters discuss in detail these phases. Chapter 1 on the decision phase concerns these functions: establish communications, develop agency interest, obtain agency decision, and identify needs. Chapter 2 on implementation addresses agreement development, curriculum development and identification of method of instruction, teacher recruitment and orientation, and program implementation. Chapter 3 on the evaluation phase discusses evaluation of student performance and program administration and provision of feedback to agency administration, ABE coordinator, and teacher. An appendix provides a guide to linkage agencies. (YLB)
