Curriculum Outline for Teaching Writing to Adults: Intended Learning Outcomes, Strategies, Suggestions and Resources. Resource Series for Teaching Writing to Adults.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Two Year Coll. Development Center.
This document was developed as a resource for teacher trainers and adult educators who are teaching writing to adults. It has been designed to provide suggested intended learning outcomes, instructional strategies, and resources in an easy-to-use format. Most of the document is a chart that lists 10 intended learning outcomes, with parallel columns of strategies and suggestions for teaching writing to adult basic education and high school equivalency students. Recommended resources are also listed. The intended learning outcomes are derived from two principles: (1) they reflect the research that supports the teaching of writing as a process that begins with thinking and planning, progresses to writing a first draft, continues to revising, and concludes by preparing a final draft; and (2) they are directly related to the criteria of effective writing by which the General Educational Development writing sample is evaluated. Appendixes provide samples, checklists, forms, and a 58-item bibliography. (KC)
