Working with Learners on Short-Term Learning Goals. Facilitator's Guide [and] Participant Packet.
Arlington County Public Schools, VA. REEP, Arlington Education and Employment Program.
In 1998, Virginia's Quality Indicators and Core Standards provided a new measure for documenting educational gains for adults who are, according to the Performance Standard for Measure 3, "pursuing learning projects based on their individual goals and/or objectives." These adults are considered "project learners." Their projects may be related to their work, family, or community roles. The Arlington Education and Employment Program embarked on a study of project learners in 1998. The goal of the study was to develop a system to help learners set up learning projects related to their goals and evaluate their own work in a way that facilitated reporting. It was also intended to develop training materials to help teachers and tutors work with learners and their short-term goals. This training packet introduces teachers to Virginia's curriculum framework and provides background reading, model lessons, and learning to help learners develop projects related to their short-term learning goals. The module includes a facilitator's guide, a participant packet, a resource packet, and sample lesson plans. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education.) (SM)
