Course Outline Workshop II: Paraprofessional Training.
Burron, Arni, Comp.; Santopietro, Kathy, Comp.
The materials in this teaching guide represent the second quarter of a community college program designed to teach paraprofessionals how to tutor in an adult literacy program. Techniques for teaching reading and English as a second language are included. The first section of this workshop includes information for tutors on the principles of English intonation, differences in pronunciation in English and Spanish, development of instructional dialogs, and suggestions for practice with instructional dialogs. The second section provides instruction in reading teaching skills with an emphasis on using the language experience approach as a basis for instruction, incorporating word recognition skills and adult oriented sight words into the lessons. The third section of the guide explains how to use an adaptation of Fry's Readability Graph to determine approximate reading levels of comprehension materials. (MKM)
