A Feel for Books. Book Discussions for Adult Developing Readers: A Resource Manual.
District of Columbia Public Library, Washington, DC.
"A Feel for Books" is a book discussion series held for adult developing readers and their teachers and tutors. Students from various literacy programs serve as hosts for the five or six sessions held yearly, and project staff and tutors serve as facilitators. This resource book describes program activities and contains selected stories and facilitator questions to promote discussion. The discussion of program development begins with considering issues related to assessing needs and providing general planning advice. Facilitating the discussion session and evaluating it also are discussed. The eight selected stories are complemented by an outline and questions for facilitators. Appendixes contain sample publicity fliers, a reading survey form, an evaluation sheet, some articles from the "D.C. Literacy Newsletter," and a glossary of literary terms. (Contains 28 references.)
