Volunteers and Teachers in the Classroom. Training Packet for a Two-Session Workshop. Study of ABE/ESL Instructor Training Approaches.
Minicz, Elizabeth; Diamond, Judith
This training packet on volunteers and teachers in the classroom is 1 of 10 developed by the Study of Adult Basic Education (ABE)/English as a Second Language (ESL) Training Approaches Project to assist ABE instructors, both professionals and volunteers. The packet is intended to stand alone and encompasses a two-session workshop series with activities scheduled for participants to accomplish between sessions. Ideally, the sessions should take place about 1 month apart. Introductory materials include information about the series and the training packet, a workshop overview (objectives, time, materials checklist, preparations checklist), and workshop outline for each session. Trainer notes for each session include a checklist of tasks to be completed before the session and an outline of activities with necessary materials and times. Three topics are covered in the sessions: roles and relationships between volunteers and teachers in the classroom; defining and evaluating volunteer tasks; and case studies. Time is allowed for preparation for the home task and feedback on the home task. Trainers' supplements, sample flyers, and participant questionnaire follow the session materials. Other contents include masters for all handouts and transparencies needed in the sessions. (YLB)
