Kissam, Ed; Dorsey, Holda
This module, which may be used as the basis for a workshop or as a special topic unit in adult basic education or English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) courses, addresses learning to learn. It is designed to help instructors explain and demonstrate how learning is part of life and provide a valuable opportunity for them to engage their students in reflecting on why they are attending an adult learning program, where they are going, and what they need to do to successfully achieve their goals. The module contains the following: an overview of the topic; the specific skills that the module emphasizes; and teaching points, learning activities, resources, and commercial textbooks. A sample lesson plan begins with a cover sheet with objectives (learners and context, room setup, to bring, to do ahead, media used, and steps). The lesson plan indicates time required, materials required, and teacher and student activities. Other contents include overhead transparency masters, handouts, presurvey, and postassessment. The objectives for this module are as follows: analyze previous learning experiences; list mentors and coaches; discover responsible learning; select and organize qualities of responsible learners; analyze the role of team work in learning; and define the "Pledge of Responsible Learners."
