Manitoba Adult Literacy Programming. Good Practice Guide. 1991-1992.

This guide contains forms designed to help adult literacy programs in Manitoba to formulate their development plans for the next year. An introductory section discusses the purpose of the program evaluation that precedes the writing of the development plan. Section I focuses on writing the development plan after completion of all sections of the guide. It identifies the four main groups that should be consulted (program managers, practitioners, learners, and funders) and suggests the use of the following headings to provide a structure for writing out the development plan in a narrative form: funding needs, funding sources, organizing, teaching plan, staff development, support and advice, and specific needs and wants. Section II, the program managers' analysis, includes forms for recording information on organizing the funding. The organizing checklist covers the following items: publicity, type of program, student supports offered, program delivery, kinds of instruction offered, support received, training/staff development, paid instructors, and volunteers. The funding portion consists of a questionnaire concerning the availability/adequacy of heat, lighting, and space and various types of learning and teaching resources and equipment. Sample and blank budgets are attached. Section III is the practitioner analysis, which each tutor and instructor should fill out individually. It requests information regarding literacy needs and/or levels (initial assessment of students and materials), teaching activities used, lesson planning, and recordkeeping. Section IV is the learner analysis to be done orally with learners by someone other than the instructor. The evaluation covers time available, space, barriers to attending, and learning activities, including reading, writing and spelling, and curriculum. (YLB)
