Grumm, Margaret; Van Horn, Barbara
The resource guide presents educators' reviews of instructional materials and resources related to adult and family literacy education, including workplace literacy. Materials reviewed include commercially available classroom materials, Internet sites, computer software, videotapes, and audiotapes. The materials reviewed were drawn from a survey of adult educators, commercial sources, and a scan of Internet resources. The guide has four main sections covering materials for family literacy, workplace literacy, community and citizenship education, and personal growth and daily living skills. A final section reviews materials appropriate for instructor use but incorporating materials for learners. Information contained in the reviews includes instructional level, availability of a teacher's guide, material types, reviewer rating, and availability, in addition to basic bibliographic information, publisher, and competencies targeted. A scan of a single page form the materials may also be included. An explanation of ratings and sample rating forms are included. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
