Literacy Coordination for Montgomery and Preble Counties. July 1, 1989 to June 30, 1990. Final Report.
Project READ, Dayton, OH.
Project READ (Reading Education for Adults in Dayton) sought to enhance the literacy of Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA)-eligible adults in the Miami Valley through improved coordination efforts. The major task of the activity to coordinate promotion of literacy resources was to create new awareness and linkages between the Human Services Department/JTPA program and the major literacy training programs. A referral process and form were developed. A four-page summary description of literacy training programs was also prepared. Workshops on assessment of learning disabilities and teaching techniques to accommodate different learning styles were conducted. Project READ compiled and distributed a training calendar that listed all literacy training sessions for teachers and tutors being offered by different Project READ members. It also sponsored workshops for teachers and tutors. Literacy instruction was not begun until mid-March 1990. The short period of training negated the possibility of pre- and post-training assessment. The number of referrals, many to programs previously never used by the Human Services Department, showed that the project had achieved its purpose of creating new awareness and linkages. Recommendations were made for improvement of all activities. (Attachments include a referral form, list of literacy training programs and site map, workshop flyer, and referral statistics.) (YLB)
