Slaughter & Associates, Woodland Hills, CA.
As the result of an extensive survey of the literature, analysis of current state plans for educating migrant farm workers, and site visits to nine programs serving adult farm workers in California, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington, a two-volume final technical report on adult migrant farm worker education is presented. The first volume contains comprehensive information for adult education administrators and teachers and service agency personnel. It includes sections on: the study findings and recommendations; characteristics of the migrant farm worker community; alternative and innovative educational approaches to serving this population; a report of the site visits; effective outreach, recruitment, and retention strategies; appropriate support services; the roles of parent education and family literacy in adult education; assessment of student progress and program effectiveness; and a review of the literature. The second volume provides practical techniques for serving adult migrant farm workers for use in the classroom and community. It includes modified versions of several sections of the first volume and a basic skills curriculum framework and daily living skills course outlines.
