Facilitator's Guide for Training Tutors and Instructors.
Nova Scotia Dept. of Advanced Education and Job Training, Halifax.
This guide suggests how to deliver a 33-hour literacy tutor/instructor training and certification program. Each of the 11 3-hour sessions is outlined and resource and audiovisual materials are listed. The guide is designed so that each facilitator can adapt the training program to fit local needs by developing activities and collecting samples relevant to the local community. Introductory materials include information on delivering the program. Components of each session include a list of resource needs (handouts, equipment, audiovisual materials) and an outline of all activities. Session topics are as follows: adult literacy, basic education, and academic upgrading in the community, workplace, or institution; some things that are known about reading; some things that are known about writing; finding out what people want or need to know; review of informal assessments and level A (from chapter 5 of the related guide) and use of learning activities; review of level B and use of learning activities; review of level C, use of learning activities, and responding to writing; review of level D, working with groups, and publishing; what to do if there does not seem to be much progress; some things that are known about math; and practicum reports and training package evaluation. Overhead transparency masters and handouts, arranged by session, are provided at the back of the guide. (YLB)
