The following materials are provided in a section on the profile of the adult learner: characteristics of adult learners, motivating factors in the teaching of adults, and the environment for teacher adults. The next section contains techniques and activities that can be implemented in multilevel groups and lab format classes. Lesson plans illustrate effective procedures in adult basic education teaching. They include English as a Second Language, General Educational Development (GED), basic skills, and pre-GED.
