Building Methods That Work: A Curriculum Developmental Manual for Including Citizens with Disabilities in Literacy Programs.
Brankin, Gayle P.; And Others
This manual for literacy tutors focuses on interactional processes between the tutor and adult student (including those with disabilities). Six processes are stressed throughout: (1) getting to know the learner, (2) participatory assessment, (3) learner-directed goal development, (4) gathering and developing teaching resources, (5) implementing the chosen program of study, and (6) program evaluation. The manual contains five sections. Section I examines principles for including citizens with disabilities in literacy projects. Section II discusses assessment practices and suggests ways to actively involve the learner in literacy evaluation. Section III explores curriculum development based on current best practices in adult education. Section IV contains supplemental materials that can be used by tutors and students. Section V contains a bibliography of more than 100 items (many with abstracts or annotations) covering assessment/evaluation, curriculum development, including citizens with disabilities, and program development. A list of additional resources (with emphasis on those in Illinois) is also provided. (DB)
