Keene, Teresa, Comp.
This manual offers practical help for the nonprofessional volunteer tutor. Part 1, "Diagnostic Techniques for Tutors," allows the tutor to find out what problems interfere with the ability of a given child to read so that the tutor can plan activities which deal with each particular difficulty. Part 2, "Developing Learning Readiness Skills," discusses basic learning readiness skills, developing visual discrimination skills, developing auditory discrimination skills, perceptual training, and mixed media instruction. Part 3, "Improving Reading Skills," deals with introducing new words, spelling games, word meaning, word recognition, word association, word sounds, and materials. Also included is a 1973 bibliographic supplement. (WR)
