Procedures Manual of the Adult Right-To Read Project of the Vermont Adult Basic Education Program 1975-1978; Addison and Rural Chittenden Counties, Vermont.
New Haven School District, VT.; Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier.
The procedures described in this manual were developed in an adult Right-to-Read project that provided individualized home instruction in reading, writing, and related basic life skills to adults in rural settings. The eight sections of the manual deal with the following topics: intention of the manual and descriptions of the project and its staff; home tutoring (including recruitment of students, initial contact with students, diagnosis, student motivation, and common problems); locating, training, and supporting volunteers (including matching tutors with students, checking out student/tutor problems, and finding roles for volunteers); publicity; record keeping; staff development; and materials (including developing materials, assembling commercial and free materials, and some sources for acquiring materials). Numerous materials are included in the appendixes, including job descriptions for project staff members, descriptions of project procedures, discussions of project assumptions and intentions, tutor questionnaires, and criteria for determining how to help students.
