Draft Competence Statements for Adult Reading and Writing. Adult Basic Education Accreditation Framework Project. Volumes One and Two.
Victorian Ministry of Education and Training, Melbourne (Australia).
The first volume in this two-volume report outlines the nine educational principles on which the competence statements for adult reading and writing are based. The four literacies--for self-expression, practical purposes, knowledge, and public debate--are defined and some representative text types and common genres are provided. The four levels within each literacy are described. Finally, this volume presents the competence statements for reading and writing at a glance. The second volume, subtitled "Appendixes," provides a detailed account of the literacy model informing this project and of how and why the competence statements are organized the way they are. The 12 appendixes are as follows: (1) Nine Educational Principles: Some Questions Addressed; (2) Organization of the Competence Statements; (3) Organization of the Writing Competence Statements; (4) Writing Competence: 16 Statements (four exit levels x four literacy domains); (5) Organization of the Reading Competence Statements; (6) Reading Competence: 16 Statements (four exit levels x four literacy domains); (7) A Model of Literacy Competence; (8) Writing Competence: Each of the Four Literacy Domains, Levels 1-4; (9) Writing Competence: Comprehensive Literacy at Each Level; (10) Reading Competence: Each of the Four Literacy Domains, Levels 1-4; (11) Reading Competence: Comprehensive Literacy at Each Level; and (12) a list of 54 references.
