This handbook is intended to help administrators and instructors of adult basic education and English-as-a-Second-Language programs use the 30 Tierra de Oportunidad (Land of Opportunity) instructional modules, which address four strands or clusters relating to the different major domains in which adults function: work life, family life, community, and lifelong learning. The following items are included: introduction; administrator summary (overview of the modules and their development and implementation suggestions); general teacher tips and skill development matrix; abstracts of the modules and tips for using them; advice on assessment; and student tips (overview for students, student contract, and student self-assessment). Each module abstract contains the following: discussion of the module's importance; teaching points; learning activities; and matrix. The matrix outlines the following: grouping strategies, incorporation of the Secretary's Commission for Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) skills; ideas for presentation; self-directed learning activity; insider information; and activities to direct students' reflection on the module. These items are appended: vision of literacy in the information society; suggested reading strategies; list of language forms and functions; top 20 education resources on the World Wide Web; skills identified by the SCANS report and information about them; and a bibliography of 164 print resources and 19 Web addresses.
