Getting Together: Establishing a Working Tutorial Relationship. Instructional Concept Guide No. 1.
Palmatier, Robert A.; And Others
The instructional concept guide is part of a system developed for tutor training and support. It is primarily designed for volunteers, but it can also be adapted to the training of paraprofessional tutors for any type of adult literacy program. A key component in the system is the Tutor Support Library, consisting of Instructional Concept Guides (training and reference aids for tutors) and Functional Content Units (models for the practical application of tutoring skills). Guide One is an orientation to tutoring. In material addressed to the tutor it discusses the need to combat adult illiteracy, tutor qualifications, the process of learning to read, understanding the student and his needs, dialect patterns, getting to know the student, and suggestions for materials to use in further preparation for tutoring. Guides Two and Three which deal with the first sessions with a student are designed to be used in sequence following Guide One. (Author/MS)
