The Teaching of Sight Words: Ways and Means. Instructional Concept Guide No. 7.
Strader, Susan; 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 Seven is designed to help the tutor in the teaching of sight words. The basic concept of sight word learning is discussed. A sample lesson plan using one approach is presented along with probable results and follow-up teaching suggestions. Sixteen other activities for teaching and practicing sight words are briefly described. The Great Atlantic and Pacific Sight Word List, the Dolch List of Basic Sight Words, and the Thorndike Word Frequency List are included in the guide. (Author/MS)
