TUTOR: Techniques Used in the Teaching of Reading. A Handbook for Teaching Basic Reading to Adults and Teenagers.
Colvin, Ruth J.; Root, Jane H.
Intended for those who have had no technical training in the teaching of basic reading, this manual provided step-by-step instructions so that inexperienced tutors can apply professional approaches to teaching reading. The chapters of the book discuss the problem of functional illiteracy, the profile of a good literacy teacher, the profile of an adult student, preteaching needs (diagnosis of reading problems and writing instruction), word recognition skills (experience story, sight words, phonics, phonics-in-pattern, and applying all techniques to all materials), comprehension skills, goals and plans, student motivation and reinforcement, other teaching helps, English as a second language, and teacher competency evaluation. Appendixes provide common sight words, functional reading word list for adults, useful words for filling out forms, signs in capitals, phonics-in-pattern word lists, and endings added to base words. A bibliography of simple adult books is provided. (DB)
