INTRODUCTION


This third revision of A Selected Annotated Bibliography of Instructional

Literacy Materials for Adult Basic Education reflects the increased concern

with areas of the Adult Basic Education (ABE) curriculum such as consumer educa-

tion, family living, and practical mathematics.

For convenience the bibliography is divided into the following parts:

1. Communication skill building materials

2. Tests designed for ABE students

3. Mathematics skill building materials

4. Consumer and family education skills

Materials are listed alphabetically by publisher. The readability levels

are included in the annotations.

Prices are those listed in current catalogs.

While the bibliography is extensive it is not all-inclusive. Users of

earlier editions of the bibliography may note that some materials formerly in-

cluded are now excluded. This is due to an increased number of publications to

select from and the reduced need to use materials that were designed for child-

ren.









SELECTION OF ADULT BASIC EDUCATION INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS


Instructional materials for Adult Basic Education classes should be selected
in terms of the learner, the learning situation in which instruction is to
take place, and the educational philosophy of the teacher and the system in-
volved.

The problem of what materials to use in teaching the functionally illiterate
adult is compounded by the fact that often he has been unsuccessful in past
learning situations. He may be suspicious of teachers and schools and gen-
erally feels that he cannot learn. The student's task then to him becomes
one in which he must gain confidence, demonstrate the immediate values of
additional learning, and assure him immediate success in the learning situa-
tion.

The accomplishment to these instructional goals requires careful selection
of teaching materials. Instruction, if it is to be successful, must be so
designed that a great deal of individualization is possible. The wide range
of academic achievement plus the need of each adult to feel that he is a
worthy, respected person necessitates the addition of this factor in the
selection of materials. Although criteria for selection can be given, the
educator must base his choices on his knowledge of his students. The fol-
lowing criteria is suggested:

1. The content should be appropriate for adults and should be designed to
aid in meeting one or more of the program's objectives.

2. The cost should not be excessive. No great amount of money should be
spent on any one type of teaching material but rather a balance should
be maintained.

3. A well-stocked library of books, workbooks, teaching kits, and other
written material should be obtained before purchase is made of expen-
sive audio-visual devices.

4. Much of the instructional material should make use of teaching devices
such as headings, purpose-setting statements, questions, etc.

5. The materials should be largely self-instructional.

6. Materials should be ordered in amounts sufficient to cover the range
of achievement levels in the class.

7. Materials for use with groups should be multi-leveled with the same
concept covered on several readability levels.

8. Different methods work best with different students. No one book, series,
kit or machine-based program is best for all.

9. The materials ordered for skills development should teach practical and
functional facts and concepts while developing the skill area.









10. Illustrations should be multi-ethnic.

11. Print should not be under 10 point.

12. The edition date should be recent.
