Pre-GED Instruction for Adults of Limited English Proficiency. Final Project Report.
Mulcrone, Patricia; Chapman, Jean B.
From September 15, 1980 to June 30, 1981, William Rainey Harper College (Illinois) conducted a project to train high school equivalency program teachers with limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in their classes. The training addressed the special needs of the LEP students in mathematics, English writing, and English reading instruction in preparation for the General Education Development (GED) equivalency test. Project staff developed the following: curricula in mathematics and writing skills; annotated bibliographies in mathematics, English, and reading; a reading handbook; learning activity packets/lessons in mathematics; and lessons in English. The report describes the project's goals and objectives, its activities and outcomes in each subject area, and the methods and results of efforts to evaluate the materials and workshops developed. Recommendations are made for guiding and advising the LEP student in pre-GED instruction. Appended materials, which comprise the bulk of the document, consist of the materials developed as part of the project. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
