Handbook for Teachers of Reading in Adult Basic Education.
Friedman, Lora R.; Knight, David W.
This handbook is intended to give the working teacher some background and practical suggestions for helping adults become effective, independent readers. Chapters One and Two give a brief overview of adult literacy training and look at some of the basic human needs of adults who have returned to school. Chapters Three and Four define the basic reading skills and give examples of activities for learning these skills, examples for the teacher to build upon. Chapter Five, on measurement of reading performance, concerns ways to determine the skills a student has, the skills he needs to learn, and ways of implementing a diagnostic teaching-learning program. Chapter Six looks at students as individuals and as group members in order to help the teacher organize his students for most effective learning. Chapter Seven concerns evaluation of personal growth, materials, and the overall program. A list of supplementary reading is provided at the end of each chapter. A bibliography of materials and resources concludes the volume. (For related document, see AC 012630.) (Author/KM)
