Teaching Reading through Oral Histories.
This manual provides reading materials and exercises to teach reading and corollary academic skills. It also exemplifies a method of creating learner-centered materials relevant to the adult student. Teacher materials found at the beginning of the manual include a curriculum guide for obtaining oral histories; the guide is an effective vehicle for motivation of individual and group student participation in the preparation of materials. These steps are outlined: stimulating students to talk, taping or student writing, transcribing, editing, and developing exercises. Suggestions are offered for teaching beginning readers, all students, and the advanced student. The manual is divided into eight sections, defined by themes (topics) that students discussed. Each section contains one to nine stories. Exercises follow each story. Contents of three additional sections are old sayings, old remedies, and maps. Answer keys conclude the manual. (YLB)
