Bloem, Patricia L., Comp.; Padak, Nancy D., Comp.
Supplementing a guide published in 1995, this annotated bibliography contains 80 one-page listings of books for adult learners in adult basic education (ABE) and General Educational Development (GED) programs. Arranged in alphabetical order by author, each listing includes the following: title, author's name, illustrator's name, date of publication, publisher, city of publication, ISBN number, type, rating as decided by at least three reviewers, whether pictures are included, reading level, rural or urban, themes, summary, and teaching ideas. Books are also listed according to the following themes: African American experience; Appalachia; architecture; communities and change; death; family; farm life; history of Ohio; history of the United States; history of the world; humor; immigration; music; reminiscences; science; tales; war; and work. Listings by genres include biographies, drama, essays, photography, poetry, and short stories. Books were selected through evaluation by a minimum of three readers, discussion, and rating of "whole-hearted approval," or "guidance," alerting teachers that they may want to provide background information or handle the book in a special way.
