Burron, Arni, Comp.; Santopietro, Kathy, Comp.
The materials in this teaching guide represent the third 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. Lesson plans for five classes cover the informal reading inventory, review and practice in the use of the reading inventory, review of techniques for teaching reading skills, writing objectives for learning packets, and developing learning packets. Topics for learning packets in the areas of adult survival literacy are occupational needs, health and safety needs, government and law, community resources, and consumer economics. A sample learning packet on foods and nutrition contains instructions to the tutor on how to use picture and word flashcards, pronunciation aids, and dialog suggestions. (MKM)
