The Adult Basic Education (ABE) Teacher Development Project, July 1, 1999-June 30, 2000. Final Report.
This paper describes the 1999-2000 Adult Basic Education (ABE) Teacher Development Project at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The project's goals were to help the Hawaii Department of Education develop the infrastructure to provide continuous support to its ABE teachers and to disseminate information to and among ABE teachers. Its two objectives were to hold a minimum of three workshops in which teachers could network and share ideas and to disseminate information to the community schools about resources and training activities offered by other organizations. Workshop awareness involved sending flyers to community schools. Workshop topics were identified through surveys of ABE teachers from previous projects and input from ABE administrators at the state and school level. The workshops focused on the importance of jobs and using standards to choose and use instructional materials for ABE and English as a Second Language learners. Community school teachers were trained to conduct the workshops. This report reviews the five workshops that were conducted by the project. It also presents the number of participants at each workshop, workshop problems and benefits, and recommendations for similar projects. The 10 appendixes include workshop agendas and workshop evaluations for each event. (SM)
