An Inside Approach: Organizing Integrated Learning Opportunities.
Camilleri, Christine; And Others
This guide is intended to help people improve their reading, writing, and numeracy skills within existing organizations, services, or community activities. It is divided into two sections. The first gives some background information on literacy in Canada, adult learners, and the rationale for integrating learning into existing opportunities. The second focuses on implementing the approaches. Planning and organizing learning initiatives, recruiting participants, developing options and opportunities for improving skills, training volunteers, and evaluating the effectiveness of an approach are addressed in the second section. In addition, some misconceptions about people with reading difficulties are addressed. Profiles of adult learners are included as well as approaches suitable for facilitating adult learning. An overview of the planning, organizing, and implementing process is provided. A range of options to take advantage of learning opportunities is discussed: peer learning, learning with computers, family involvement, and learning through oral stories. Steps in planning and implementing workshops for volunteers are outlined. A section on evaluating the progress of learning initiatives and individuals as well as 43 references complete the guide.
