Goss, Barbara A.
This document reports on a project to conduct four to six in-service workshops for adult basic education (ABE) educators to develop their public speaking skills and create a speakers' bureau of ABE alumni. The goal of the speakers' bureau was to increase recruitment and retention of ABE students and improve public awareness of ABE. The packet of materials developed to conduct the workshops are part of an appendix that makes up the greater part of this document. The appendix also includes the following: letters to community groups which might have speakers from the speakers' bureau at their meetings, a list of organizations contacted, outlines of lessons on public speaking, information sheets on preparing various types of speeches, and sample speeches.
