Blueprint for Tutoring Adult Readers.
Brown, Nancy M.; Hakanson, Edward E.
This guide was developed to assist volunteers in tutoring adult readers who read below the ninth-grade level. It was intended to be used as a supplement to the tutor training programs for volunteers at Drake University. The following topics are discussed in the guide in either narrative or question-and-answer format: getting started as a tutor, who are the clients, getting acquainted, tutoring procedures, and learning activities. Tutoring procedures include methods for teaching sight vocabulary, word attack, vowel sounds, syllables, context clues, word families, comprehension, the language experience approach, and using computers.
