The project Survey of Resources for Teachers of Adult Numeracy aimed to contribute to the process of improving adult numeracy teaching in Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) programs, by connecting teachers with resources. The first element of the project, the questionnaire, was designed to identify the resources that were most needed by teachers. Some questions in the questionnaire asked teachers directly what they feel they needed, while other questions sought to find this out indirectly, by asking teachers to describe their adult numeracy teaching and learning situations. The questionnaire had forty-five questions, and was administered to seventeen LBS teachers in Ottawa-Carleton. This document contains the teachers' compiled responses to the questionnaire, and will be used to help publicize existing high-quality adult numeracy resources and to suggest appropriate new adult numeracy resources to be developed.
