Summary

Several methods and techniques proven successful in literacy and adult basic education are discussed. The Laubach method does not depend on a plot but uses a chart which pictures an English phrase, letter, word, and stylized representation of the first letter of the word. The Gouin Theme Method is Gestalt in approach as the entire sentences are linked to others and form a story. The Community Approach Method structures lessons around daily happenings familiar to adult students. The Basic English Method provides an 850 word basic vocabulary for foreign born illiterates. A four step experience is used in the Direct Method, consisting of (1) filmstrips of whole stories expressed in underlined sentences, (2) duplication of the story through use of flash cards and other teaching materials, (3) phonetic attack on words, and (4) comprehension. A sixth method adds television teaching in the Laubach Method. Establishment of good rapport and permissive classroom climate are essential to the nondirective approach in the Lark Method. Techniques discussed include global (sight reading), synthetic, analytic-synthetic, eclectic, Bloomfield, and Gray. (Footnotes and a bibliography are included.) (pt)
