Discovery and Respect: A Handbook for Student-directed Group Learning. First Edition.
Clarke, Mallory
Based on 4 years' experience in a Goodwill adult literacy program, this handbook offers insights to teachers who want to facilitate student-directed group learning. The handbook is organized in seven sections that cover the following: (1) comments on the nature of adult learning and the philosophy of the approach; (2) thoughts on progressive education and learner-centered education; (3) reading theory; (4) methodology for teaching reading (comprehension, skill building, student-led activities, locating and reworking reading materials); (5) teaching writing (inspiring writing, the writing process, writing to learn); (6) multicultural and class sensitivity (including the use of Black English); and (7) designing lessons for adult beginning readers. Two appendixes include a critical thinking chart and a thinking-about-literature chart. (KC)
