ALBSU Newsletter, n53 insert Sum 1994
This insert, which is written for adult basic education (ABE) teachers, presents practical advice on storing the written work generated by students and teachers in ABE programs. Discussed first is the value of ABE students' completed work as the following: a record of achievement that can document students' progress and motivate them to continue their programs; reference material to which students can refer when they need repetition, reminders, and reinforcement; a planning tool that can be used to appraise students' work more and thereby result in better learning plans; material for inclusion in accreditation portfolios; and a vehicle for helping students develop pride in their work and improve their self-esteem. Teacher and student roles in saving/storing work are outlined, and considerations in deciding who should assume responsibility for storing students' files are discussed. Examined in a section on file organization are the questions of how to classify students' written work and what to include in accreditation portfolios and student files. A sample student record consisting of background information about the student and a coursework file is included along with a sample numeracy skills assessment instrument. (MN)
