Teaching Literacy in Home Tutoring.
This guide is designed to help home tutors in New Zealand who are working with adult learners of English as a Second Language in need of basic literacy training. This audience includes preliterate and semi-literate individuals, as well as individuals literate in a non-Latin alphabet language. After an introductory section, the second section offers hints on planning and conducting lessons, and notes on adult learner characteristics and language needs. The third section contains pre-reading exercises for auditory perception and visual discrimination. Section 4 outlines aims, needs, and several approaches and techniques for teaching reading, and the subsequent section offers similar information for writing instruction. The sixth section presents ideas for creating or using readily available items as instructional materials. The final section contains a list of questions the tutor can ask himself at the end of a lesson, a checklist to assess student progress, and a list of additional resources.
