Welcome to Our World. A Book of Writings by and for Students and Their Tutors.
Literacy Volunteers of Greater Hartford, CT.
A book of writings by adult students in the Hartford, Connecticut, area is presented. The book represents a celebration of the students and their tutors, whose writings about the students' work are also included. For many of the writings, the prompt is provided as an aid to other teachers who may want to talk and write about similar subjects. Students and tutors worked together to talk about stories and poems, lives, and goals; they then wrote their responses and tutors helped them with spelling and punctuation. As little editing as possible was done prior to production of this book. The writings include the following: "Welcome to My World"; "Coming to America, Remembering Our Homelands"; "Our Families, Ourselves"; "Reading, Writing, Learning, Teaching"; "We Worship, We Celebrate"; "Partnerships"; and "Thanks to Literacy Volunteers." The final selection, "Tutor Talk," offers suggestions for working with these learner-generated materials, including ideas for writing projects. Appended are several selections for new readers, such as a summary of a Langston Hughes' story, and other student writing samples. (LB) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
