The Pennsylvania Migrant Adult Model Curriculum Resource Guide: A Needs Assessment Approach.
Williams, Miriam Q.; Labriola, Robert J.
Providing a data basis for the planning and implementation of educational programs for migrant adults, this guide is a product of a year-long research effort which focused on the adult migrants in Pennsylvania, their educational needs and interests, the unique factors which should be considered in designing and providing educational programs and resources for these adults, and the resources and programs currently existing for this group. Data were gathered through needs assessment workshops, literature searches, and interviews. The guide is divided into four sections. Section I describes the general situation of migrants and gives State-wide recommendations for meeting their educational needs. Section II contains the English and Spanish versions of the needs assessment workshop and an explanation of the mechanics involved in gathering data. Section III presents the needs assessment data broken down into 8 geographical groupings which represent 27 counties. Data for each area has been coded, to an accompanying map, via tabs on the right side of data pages. The map highlights areas in which information was collected. Section IV contains a description of 11 APL (Adult Performance Level) materials, a 6-item APL bibliography, a 14-item migrant bibliography, a list of 12 resources for migrant educators, a list of 13 adult education publications and newsletters, a list of 99 people and organizations concerned with migrants, and a 2-item bibliography on funding.
