Curriculum Plan for Tutoring Adult Readers.
Brown, Nancy M.; Hakanson, Edward E.
This curriculum plan contains materials for tutors to use in teaching adults to read. It was developed for the Drake University reading tutoring program. The curriculum plan is organized in four levels. The first level covers letter recognition, handwriting, auditory discrimination, sound/symbol coordination, short vowel sounds, sight words, and autonyms. In the second level, sight words, long vowels, blends/digraphs, context clues, alphabetical order, synonyms, and main ideas are detailed. The third level provides materials for teaching other vowels, context clues, structural analysis, main idea, details, sight words, and digraphs, while the final level covers homonyms, affixes, syllabication, spelling patterns, survival words, and evaluation. For each level, the curriculum plan provides objectives, criterion-referenced tests, and answer keys. (KC)
