Statewide Staff Development Project: Adults with Learning Differences. Final Report 1997/98.
A project was conducted to continue to provide adult educators in Pennsylvania with information about adults with learning differences and techniques for their instruction. Five new training sessions were developed as part of the project: (1) accommodating adults with learning disabilities; (2) if they think differently, shouldn't they study differently; (3) designing programs to meet the needs of adults who learn differently; (4) improving reading comprehension; and (5) vocabulary development. A variety of methods were used in the staff development. During the project, more than 200 adult educators who did not participate in the previous projects received training, and more than 250 additional adult educators who had attended previous training attended advanced training during the project year. A learning disabilities newsletter was developed and disseminated to adult educators throughout the state. (Appendixes include samples of the project newsletter, strategies for vocabulary building, and descriptions of the training sessions.) (KC)
