Language Experience Approach for Computer-Aided Instruction in a Volunteer-Taught Adult Literacy Program. An Instructional Guide.
Smith, Jeanne H.
This guide was designed for trained tutors who teach adult literacy students on a one-to-one basis using a computer with a word-processing program. The guide is organized in five parts. The first part covers the use of computers in adult literacy and the language experience approach, a method in which the student's own words and stories are used as the text for teaching reading. Steps for designing lessons using the language experience approach are given. Part 2 contains sample lessons based on experiences with adult students, and Part 3 consists of resource lists of reading and writing terms and teaching methods. An overview of phonics is included. Additional resources, such as computer terms and more information about word processing, make up Part 4, and Part 5 contains hints for developing and managing a computer center for adult literacy students. A bibliography completes the guide. (KC)
