It's with pleasure and sadness that I announce that there's a new issue of
"Focus on Basics" now available at http://www.ncsall.net/index.php?id=1150
The pleasure? It's a great issue. The sadness, it's the last issue.
It includes articles from a variety of NCSALL researchers on their research:
--John Strucker on the need for curriculum structure --Steve Reder and Clare
Strawn on the tendency for adults without high school diplomas to study on
there own, and what that means for adult basic education. (Molly Robertson
and Lauri Schoneck write about programs that capitalize on the motivation to
"self-study") --John Tyler on whether GED attainers are entering
postsecondary education at a rate on par with regular high school completers
--Rima Rudd and Jennie Anderson on why it's so hard to find your way around
in healthcare facilities and what we can do about it --Cristine Smith, Mary
Beth Bingman, and Kaye Beall on lessons learned from ten years of
disseminating research Enjoy!
After ten years of research and development, the National Center for the
Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) project is coming to an end.
