The ABLE Sampler. A Professional Development Guide for Adult Literacy Practitioners.
Royce, Sherry, Ed.
This guide provides adult literacy practitioners with a sampling of 103 exemplary professional development resources. It is designed to address the broad needs and interests of adult literacy practitioners and is intended as a resource guide for out-of-field professionals, who are being called upon to perform adult literacy services. Books, exemplary journal articles, monographs, special projects, and videotapes are included. The guide is divided into nine chapters. Each contains an introduction by a leading authority in the subject area, followed by the core collection review(s) and the annotated listing of resources. These subject areas are addressed: administration and management; adults as learners; diverse populations; evaluation; history, philosophy, and politics; instructional strategies; social context; and workplace literacy. The final subject area of adult literacy resources introduces the services of ERIC and AdvancE, Pennsylvania's adult education rewsource center. References include curriculum guides, bibliographies, and a manual on preparing and individualizing reading materials. A section containing names, addresses, and commentaries on 33 journals and newsletters for adult literacy providers is followed by a publishers' list for all resources in this guide. Other contents include contributors' profiles, criteria for selection of resources, and index. (YLB)
