Research-based principles for adult basic education reading instruction by John Kruidenier( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents results from an analysis of the adult basic education (abe) reading instruction research base, focusing on principles derived from the research and a future research agenda. After an introduction, Chapter 2 presents methods used to select and evaluate research related to abe reading instruction. Chapter 3 serves as an index to the abe and k-12 reading instruction research findings that appear in Chapters 4-9. Chapters 4-8 focus on these major aspects of reading instruction: assessing students to describe their reading "profiles" or overall reading ability; alphabetics instruction; fluency instruction; vocabulary instruction; and reading comprehension. Computer technology is covered in Chapter 9. Each chapter presents these items: (1) a description of the major aspect of reading covered, including a definition and rationale and, when appropriate, assessment; (2) major questions related to abe reading instruction associated with specific topics of interest to abe practitioners; (3) answers to questions in the form of emerging principles or trends when research addressed the questions; (4) summary of the research related to each principle or trend; and (5) ideas (and comments) for abe reading instruction derived from k-12 reading instruction research. Chapter 10 summarizes important findings and presents an agenda for future research. Appendixes include 25 background references and 71 study references. (Ylb)

Disability & literacy : how disability issues are addressed in adult basic education programs : findings of a national focus group by National Institute for Literacy (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A national focus group with 25 participants explored the current state of services for persons with disabilities in adult basic education (abe) and how the abe and disability communities could work together to create better service models. It found many states are doing little in this area. Six key findings were as follows: state abe programs are increasingly aware that a large subset of the population they serve have disabilities that can affect how literacy skills are gained; many states and service programs do not feel their programs have the capacity to provide for needs of persons with disabilities (PWDs) and avoid the issue; state agencies do not clearly understand each others' responsibilities and roles in meeting needs of PWDs in their literacy programs; training for state and local administrators and service providers on the laws and instructional interventions related to disabilities is inadequate; meeting needs of persons with learning disabilities is perceived to be more problematic than meeting access needs of persons with physical disabilities; and the current level of disability services in adult literacy programs varies greatly by state. Five steps toward solutions were offered: gain a real picture of what is happening in all states; create ongoing working groups at the state and national levels focused on these issues; develop partnerships to expand resources available for literacy services; work towards developing a means to better identify disabilities; and provide input into state and federal legislation. (Appendixes include a list of participants, federal policy statement, state initiatives, and participant comments.) (Ylb)
Reading, know what works( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based directly on the findings from the National Research Council's report "Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children," this guide offers a "checklist" that will help teachers and principals recognize at a glance the key characteristics of quality reading programs identified in the research. The guide does not describe any single way to teach a child to read. It is divided into six parts: Understanding Reading Instruction; Reading Readiness; Beginning Readers; Intermediate Readers; Children with Special Needs; and Grade-by-Grade Accomplishments. The first 5 sections are not broken down by grade level. In the early grades, all children learn to read at different speeds and how to deal with different challenges. The "accomplishments" listed in the last section are based on grade levels to give teachers and parents a sense of what they can reasonably expect children to do as they become more skillful readers.

What works : integrating basic skills training into welfare-to-work by Garrett Murphy( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to determine what was happening in literacy programs as a result of the major welfare reform law passed in 1996, and whether basic skills instruction was part of the solution. A nationwide search for exemplary programs that are using basic skills instruction as a fundamental component of assisting welfare recipients in moving successfully into the work force was conducted, and the 84 programs identified were judged by a panel of specialists in welfare, adult education, and employment and training. The review panel selected eight programs as exemplary. Common characteristics found among the successful programs include the following: (1) focus on employment-related goals; (2) hands-on work experience; (3) collaboration with welfare agencies and other community organizations; (4) early intervention and personal attention in addressing problems; and (5) commitment to continuous staff development. The study concluded that states can integrate and are currently integrating basic skills instruction into their welfare-to-work activities, and that more such programs are likely to be added beginning in 1999, because states will have greater latitude in combining education, training, and work for every welfare recipient counted toward work requirements. (The report contains the following: profiles of the 8 exemplary programs; a glossary of 15 key terms; contact information for the programs; 28 recommended resources, including organizations and publications; and a program nomination form and evaluation forms.)
