Koehler, Sandra; Dean, Peggy
This training packet on monitoring student progress 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 two-session workshop series with activities scheduled for participants to accomplish between sessions. Ideally, the sessions should take place about one 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: ways of monitoring student progress; lesson planning; and development of lesson plan. Time is allowed for preparation for the home task and feedback on the home task. Trainer's supplements follow each session. Other contents include sample flyers, participant questionnaire, and masters for all handouts and transparencies needed in the sessions. Two background readings are included: Alternative Assessment: An Annotated Bibliography; Portfolios; and Authentic Assessment, Evaluation, and Documentation of Student Performance. (YLB)
