The Adult Learner. Training Packet for a Three-Session Workshop. Study of ABE/ESL Instructor Training Approaches.
Tibbetts, John; And Others
This training packet on the adult learner is 1 of 10 developed by the Study of Adult Basic Education (ABE)/English as a Second Language (ESL) Training Approaches Project to assist ABE instructors, both professionals and volunteers. The packet is intended to stand alone and encompasses a three-session workshop series with activities scheduled for participants to accomplish between sessions. Ideally, the sessions should take place about 1 month apart. Introductory materials include information about the series and the training packet, a workshop overview (objectives, time, materials checklist, preparations checklist), and workshop outline for each session. Trainer notes for each session include a checklist of tasks to be completed before the session and an outline of activities with necessary materials and times. Topics covered in the sessions are as follows: ABE/ESL adult learners; views of adult development; cooperative learning; implications of adult learning theory for instructional planning; and lesson planning. Time is allowed for preparation for the home task and feedback on the home task. Trainer's supplements for sessions 1 and 2 contain possible responses and additional instructions. Masters for all handouts and transparencies needed in the sessions are provided. Three supplementary readings for session 1 conclude the packet: The Importance of Context in Adult Learning; Views of Adult Development; and 27 References for Supplementary Readings. (YLB)
