PROUD Adult Readers 1-4. People Reading Their Own Unique Dictations [and] A Guide for Teachers and Tutors.
New Educational Projects, Inc., Lancaster, PA.
This document consists of a guide for teachers and tutors and four "readers" for adults. These readers are intended to eliminate the problems associated with book-centered, one-to-one tutoring, such as the following: (1) uninteresting, irrelevant materials focusing on single reading skills rather than reading as communication; (2) materials that lack learner-centered activities; or (3) materials that reinforce low self-worth attitudes. The guide explains the purpose of the readers and has sections on language experience, choosing the appropriate reader, and the use of the readers. It also offers points to remember when using the readers and suggests other uses for the material. Each of the four books consists of stories and follow-up activities designed to teach reading to adult students. The stories, written by students using the language experience approach, range from a few sentences to a few pages. Skill exercises presented after each story include fill-in-the-word, word and plural formation, word search, and comprehension questions. Stories are illustrated with cartoons. The materials are progressively more challenging, so that the teacher can select the appropriate level for each student or may start the student in book one and progress from book to book. (CML)
