Planning for Instruction. Training Packet for a Two-Session Workshop. Study of ABE/ESL Instructor Training Approaches.
This training packet on planning for instruction 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 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: needs/skills/interests assessment; rationale for involving adult learners in planning and evaluating instruction; learner-centered assessment processes; role of basic skill and life transfer objectives; sequencing learning activities; and material adaptation. 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. An evaluation form for each session is provided. (YLB)
