Learning Resources Evaluations Manual.
Nunes, Evelyn H., Ed.
This Learning Resources Evaluation Manual (LREM) contains evaluations of 140 instructional products listed in the 1994 supplement to Virginia's Adult Education Curricula Resource Catalog. A table of contents lists topics/subjects and page numbers. Some titles that are useful under more than one category are cross-listed for easy reference. These topics are included: career development/education; coping/survival skills; critical thinking; English (grammar and usage, writing, spelling); English as a Second Language (ESL); General Educational Development (GED) (interpreting literature and the arts, mathematics, science, social studies, writing skills); mathematics; pre-GED; reading; science/health and nutrition; and social studies (government, history, citizenship). The evaluation for each title is in a two-page format. The first page includes general information (name, copyright date, price, address, value); format of materials; comments; and readability level. The second page is a completed copy of the Checklist for Evaluating Instructional Materials. Sections include goals and objectives; validity; content of materials; objectivity; components and organization; teacher materials; and summary and recommendations. A directory of publishers is appended. (YLB)
