This packet of materials for the adult literacy volunteer contains a booklet of information and accompanying reading selections meant to help a tutor get started with a new learner. The booklet covers these topics: initial assessment of learners with sample student interview form; informal assessment with assessment questions; observing the student reading; descriptions of the stages of learning; and assessing learners at stages one, two, and three. An appendix addresses determining readability levels. A small packet of reading passages to be used to assess student reading is provided. The final component of this packet of materials is a series of aids for the tutor that include the following: suggestions for assessing learning levels; questions to elicit student background information; suggestions for getting to know the learner; the "look, cover, write, check" approach to learning words; steps in assisted reading; steps to spelling; steps in the language experience approach; and steps in language experience with stage two learners.
