Teaching One-to-One: A Diagnostic Approach to Beginning Tutoring. Instructional Concept Guide No. 2.
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 time 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 Two describes some basic teaching procedures for tutoring adults in reading. The steps involved in lesson planning, record keeping, student evaluation, and the diagnostic/prescriptive cycle are presented. Suggestions for preparing and teaching the first lesson are given along with a sample lesson plan and sample guided conversation questions. Also included is an informal communication rating scale and a sight word list. Guide One should be studied by the tutor before reading Guide Two. Guide Three which also deals with the first sessions with a student, is designed to follow Guide Two. (Author/MS)
