Computer Assisted Everyday Basic Skills. Final Report.
Woodruff, Barbara; Molek, Carol
These materials were prepared by a project that developed and used a computer-assisted comprehensive life skills curriculum partly based on an existing life skills program, "Everyday Basic Skills," and added new modules in civics and legislative legal issues relevant to Pennsylvania. An 18-page final report is followed by a curriculum outline and bibliography. An Introduction to Computer Assisted Everyday Basic Skills Modules contains an introduction, information on student interests and capabilities assessment, information on computer literacy, and a brief overview of the modules. A technical glossary is appended. A student handbook contains an introductory computer literacy module and materials and exercises for the modules. Lesson plans are provided for the following modules: basic skills, everyday math, everyday English, everyday social skills, everyday reasoning skills, employability skills, life skills, teen parent life skills, first step (literacy level life skills--home and family, consumer issues, personal development), sex equity and nontraditional occupations, civics--local government, laws, and legal issues, and step up (advanced computer-enhanced basic skills--advanced level math, advanced level English, vocabulary for post-high school education and technical employment, and financing/testing concerns). The format for each lesson plan is as follows: skill, assessment, materials list, and teaching strategy and techniques. (YLB)
