Richards, Lisa, Ed.
"GED Items" is published by the GED Testing Service of the American Council on Education. This volume contains six issues, each containing several articles related to adult education, equivalency testing, and the General Educational Development (GED) program. In the lead article of the first issue, Judith Anderson discusses the Internet and its relevance to adult education. The second issue focuses on a radio campaign conducted by the GED Testing Service to promote its programs. The campaign features singers Anne Murray and Waylon Jennings, both GED graduates. The emphasis in Issue 3 is the beginning of full-scale GED testing in Ontario (Canada), as that province joins 10 other Canadian provinces in offering GED testing. Issue 4/5 profiles football player Reggie White, who is working with his family to promote GED testing for adults who want a second chance at a high school education. The sixth issue discusses graduation ceremonies and other rites of passage for those receiving the GED. Each issue also contains "Teaching Tips" for teacher improvement, graduate profiles, and other articles and information related to GED testing. (Contains one table and three graphs.) (SLD)
