The Newspaper: A Source of High Interest Instructional Material for Adults. Instructional Concept Guide No. 10.
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 Ten offers suggestions to the tutor for using the newspaper in adult reading instruction. Sample lessons are presented for a hypothetical student with beginning skills and a hypothetical advanced student. The five-step lesson outlines describe student skills, appropriate skills to teach, student.s interests and goals, relevant articles, and lesson planning procedures. Sample practice exercises are presented. Additional ideas and activities for teaching reading skills through the newspaper, a practice exercise for the tutor, and an 11-item bibliography are also included. (Author/MS)
