Outcome Based Curriculum Development Project Including the Areas of Pre-Literacy, Literacy, Community/Home Coping Skills. Final Report.
Bauer, Else; And Others
Curriculum materials are provided for three areas within the adult learning program in the state of Utah: preliteracy, literacy, and community/home coping skills. The preliteracy segment is designed for students (especially refugees) who have not been raised in an American cultural environment. The three sections are listening, speaking, and community orientation. The literacy segment is intended to meet the needs of beginning and nonreaders who want to improve reading skills. It includes instruction in supporting literacy skills, writing, spelling, and speaking. The segment on community/home coping focuses on competencies necessary for daily living and is written at a grade 9-12 level. Units cover consumer economics, occupational knowledge, community resources, health, and government and law. Each segment begins with comments and recommendations. For each section within a segment the following materials are provided: lists of instructional units and subunits, skills and competencies, and goals and objectives; a mini-placement inventory, a diagnostic or achievement inventory; and a list of individual instructional materials.
