Lankard, Bettina A.; Nixon-Ponder, Sarah; Imel, Susan
This document is designed to help adult basic and literacy education (ABLE) practitioners develop programs that address Ohio's Indicators of Program Quality. The 47 activities included, which were identified through an extensive search of the literature on ABLE programs outside Ohio, were selected based on the following criteria: relevance to one or more of Ohio's quality indicators; focus on small group interaction; and adaptability to a variety of settings. The activities are categorized under Ohio's eight indicators of quality, which are as follows: learner achievement, program environment, program planning, curriculum and instruction, staff development, support services, recruitment, and retention. Included in each activity's description are some or all of the following: quality indicator addressed by the activity; title of the activity; description of the activity, including the steps for implementation; estimated time; effective environment for implementation; limitations; evidence of the activity's effectiveness in improving learner outcomes; required materials; recommended classroom arrangement; reference source; and cross reference to other quality indicators. Activities are indexed by the following: reference in which the activity is cited; quality indicator(s) addressed in the activity; and adaptability code. The bibliography contains 82 references. (MN)
