Sapin, Connie; Bloem, Pat; Padak, Nancy
This supplement to an annotated bibliography describes nearly 100 books that are appropriate for use with adult learners. Some of the titles in this supplement are books best used for independent reading, but most have strong instructional ties. The supplement contains many books that can be useful in General Educational Development (GED) instruction, even for learners whose achievement may be at pre-GED levels. Each one-page summary lists bibliographical information, including ordering information, a brief summary, and themes related to the book and a GED descriptor, if appropriate. A "teaching ideas" section on each page offers general instructional suggestions, writing or discussion topics, and, in some instances, related titles. This supplement also includes a "Thematic Collections Index" for all three parts of the "Recommended Trade Books" series. Books chosen for this publication have been read by at least three readers and are rated by "W" (whole-hearted approval) or "G" (guidance). (KC)
