Delivering Small Group Literacy: A Model.
Fretz, Barbara
This paper outlines a model for delivering small group literacy to adult learners. The model provides an implementation plan consisting of four steps: preparing for a group, getting started with a group, developing the group, and bringing the cycle to a close. Suggestions for implementation are provided for each of the four steps. Information covered includes the following: building tutor commitment, tutor orientation, learner orientation, group size, matching tutors and learners, bridging individual and group goals, apprenticeship training for tutors, tutor support, peer learning, and final evaluation. The term "group tutor" is used in place of group leader or instructor in order to broaden the spectrum to include volunteer tutors as well as other types of adult educators. The model was developed as part of a project to design a comprehensive training package for volunteer literacy tutors in Ontario. (Author/KC)
