Intended learning outcomes; structured and sequential examination of concepts; examples and applications; guided practice and assignments; and tests are included in the guide. The guide focuses on 4 main components: rationale, curriculum plan, instructional plan, and an evaluation plan which follows Posner and Rudnitsky's (1997) model for curriculum design. This guide examines researchers and practitioners' insights into the field of adult education presented by Merriam and Caffarella (1991) and Langenbach (1988). The guide provides a brief overview of five educators: Whyte (1986), Collier (1993), Martin (1993), Fraser (1996), and Wiesenburg (1990), who have researched adult aboriginal learners and learning styles. The guide incorporated recommendations for teaching Native students and followed steps to promote success for adult Indians and Metis learners.
