This work offers guidelines for curriculum design and teaching approaches for adult education programmes that are broader and more interactive than many existing programmes for undereducated adults. The authors describe ways in which classes can be organized and lessons developed around the specific needs and interests of adult learners rather than around pre-packaged materials. Using this whole language approach, they give attention to reading and writing, GED and computer awareness, support and practical suggestions are provided for teachers who believe that an adult education programme must be based on current meaningful topics and be carried out in ways that respect students, actively involving them in learning meaningful content. The book identifies a structure in which adults acquire lifelong abilities and enhanced self-esteem. This theory-to-practice handbook may be useful to teachers of adult programmes in community education, business or industrial settings, as well as to administrators and education advisors of these programmes.
