T3: Training the Trainer. Helping Tutors Teach Adults to Read and Write.
Willoughby, Mary; Walsh, Susan, Ed.
This manual was developed to help trainers and volunteer coordinators prepare volunteers who tutor adults in basic skills. It is based on 9 of the 11 workshops presented at a Training the Trainer conference in Colorado. Chapters 1, 2, 4, and 6 provide background information for training. Chapters 3, 5, and 7-9 provide materials for presenting tutor training workshops based on the following four components of effective training: presentation, demonstration, practice, and evaluation. The nine chapters are as follows: (1) design terrific training; (2) evaluation; (3) tutor orientation--adults as learners; (4) fundamentals of reading; (5) language experience; (6) intermediate reading skills; (7) teaching writing as a process; (8) word attack--three techniques; and (9) spelling should be fun. Chapters include title, contents, glossary, materials checklist, preparation tips, lesson plan (including introduction, lessons with information sheets, scripts, visual aids, activities, handouts and conclusion), and a bibliography.
