Upper D M MdinM Tuesday, Nov. 29, 1960 Adult Classes Being Set Up; Start Jan. 9 Several persons from the Algona community met Wednesday evening to plan the schedule of a local Adult Education program Which will begin in January. All plans to date are tentative due to securing instructors and development of possible course con- lent. Reaso.ns for an adult program were discussed, and. as a result courses will be grouped into five catagories. 1. Vocational subjects, to teach people a saleable skill so they may improve on their job, learn n new skill, or • review skills which would enable them to reenter the labor market. Possible courses in this area are typewriting, shorthand improvement, bookkeeping and basic electricity. 2. Academic Cultural subjects, to broaden our understanding of subjects basic to our society. Courses under consideration are vocabulary improvement, practical politics, working with teenagers, oil painting, and conversational Spanish. 3. Home & Family living, which revolves around management of the home and develops profitable use ef time and materials. Courses which are materializing for this year are sewing, millinery, crocheting, knitting, and upholstery. , 4. Social Skills, to develop good use of leisure time. Possibilities in this field are bridge, modern dance for ladies, and adult recreation for men. 5. A miscellaneous section with classes possibly developing in photography, ceramics, outdoor life, and aviation is also being considered. If you have interest in an adult class other than the above, call Don Kramer or Elgin Allen at the high school. An attempt will be made to secure an instructor, facilities, and more students so the class may materialize-along with the other adult classes.
