Establishing Right-to-Read Programs in Community-Based Adult Learning Centers.
Texas Univ., Austin. Bureau of Industrial and Business Training.
The booklet provides a history of the Right-to-Read, Austin (Texas) Learning Center project and, based on the experiences at Austin, provides a guide to establishing a Right-to-Read project in a learning center. The general problems, needs, and experiences of the project are described and discussed as they evolved, under the following headings: goals, locating the facility, personnel needs, use of volunteer tutors, staffing and scheduling, testing, student records, the instructional program, equipment, recruitment and publicity, developing materials, and a cost estimate for establishing a Right-to Read/adult basic education (ABE) learning center. A summary indicates that two years of experience with a coordinated Right-to-Read/ABE learning center have shown that such centers can have a great impact on the communities they serve. It is believed that the experiences and conclusions set forth in the booklet can be adapted to fit the needs of any community-based Right-to-Read/learning center site. Forms used at the Austin center are appended, with comments on their use. (Author/NH)
