Library Services and Construction Act, Title VI Library Literacy Program. Final Performance Report.
During Fiscal Year (FY) 1987, the Allen, Texas, literacy project assisted seven new northeast Texas literacy programs in start-up and trained tutors for the existing program and new programs. For FY 1988, the goal was to fill the perceived need for development of management skills in area literacy programs. A 2-day Regional Adult Literacy Conference was attended by 143 individuals from 63 programs. Two Trainer of Trainers' workshops were held; 33 people attended the two sessions. A handbook, included in this document, was developed for these workshops. Efforts to increase use of the Allen Public Library by literacy students and to increase student involvement in the Right to Read program were unsuccessful. (The 11-page narrative report is followed by the Trainer of Trainers' Handbook. Handbook sections cover how volunteers learn; more effective training; planning for the workshop--who, where, when, how, and why; goals of trainers; workshop objectives; program need; understanding adult learners; basic laws of learning; and teaching principles. A content outline and some informative materials for a three-session workshop are included. Attachments to the report include an index, supplementary information materials on adult learning and learners, and a brochure on the workshop.) (YLB)
