A special demonstration project was undertaken to provide technical support to a Pennsylvania program that identifies and honors outstanding adult basic education and literacy (ABLE) students throughout the state. Included among the project's outcomes were the following: (1) publication of a Success Stories booklet titled "Spreading the Word" that features the success stories of 10 ABLE students who were recognized as outstanding adult learners at the 1999 midwinter conference of the Pennsylvania Association for Adult and Continuing Education; (2) development and field testing of a teacher's guide that includes educational strategies and learning activities designed to enable ABLE teachers and tutors to use the booklet "Spreading the Word" as an instructional tool with adult learners in classroom and tutoring situations at all levels of ABLE; (3) dissemination of the Success Stories booklet to Pennsylvania legislators to increase their awareness of the role that ABLE plays in helping Pennsylvania citizens overcome educational barriers and become role models in their communities; and (4) dissemination of information about the Success Stories project to local media, employers, community agencies, and local governments. Also included are the booklet "Spreading the Word," the accompanying teacher's guide, and handouts containing the 10 student success stories. (MN)
