Tutors' Resource Handbook; Assessment Items and Sample Lessons.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Right to Read Program.
This handbook provides the basic material needed to guide reading tutors in how to teach appropriate reading skills to children, both inside and outside the classroom. It is one of a series of three handbooks developed for the Right-to-Read tutor-training program; the others are the "Tutor-Trainers' Resource Handbook" (CS 002 047) and "Tutoring Resource Handbook for Teachers" (CS 002 045). Following an introduction, the contents include brief discussions of some of the characteristics of children who have problems learning to read, general principles of successful tutoring, the importance of teamwork, tips for tutoring, a breakdown of the major areas of reading skills, and a reading skills checklist. The bulk of the handbook consists of sample reading lessons for use by volunteer tutors. The appendix contains a copy of the Dolch Word List. (RB)
