U.S.A./Mexico Adult Literacy Project: Educacion sin Fronteras/Education without Borders. Final Report, January 1, 1993 - September 30, 1993.
Hacienda La Puente Unified School District, City of Industry, CA.
A cooperative literacy education program involving Mexico and the United States' border states is documented. The project has three objectives: to (1) implement the Mexican literacy agency's approach to promoting literacy among native Spanish speakers; (2) coordinate U.S./Mexico literacy task force activities; and (3) develop an immigrants' rights curriculum. This final report consists of an outline of the three objectives, sub-objectives, and measures of achievement of them, and supporting documentation in the form of eight exhibits. The exhibits include: the agenda for the 2-day meeting on selection, training, and support of literacy volunteers; a directory of literacy project pilot sites and contact persons; the agenda for a review of immigrant issues curriculum modules; sample administrative report and record forms; handouts used in a June 1993 presentation on the adult literacy project "Educacion Sin Fronteras"; sample correspondence; an analysis of Mexico's adult basic skills curriculum; and the 15 modules of the immigrant issues curriculum prototype. Most materials are in English; some are in Spanish. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
