CALL Lesson Plans 3 for Use with Metra-Summerhays Basic Reading for Adults.
Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, Las Vegas, NV.
This collection of 71 lesson plans, which is designed to assist volunteer tutors involved in the Computer-Assisted Literacy in Libraries (CALL) program, contains guidelines and materials to help tutors correlate the words-only textbook "Basic Reading for Adults" by Metra-Summerhays with other reading materials selected by students. One lesson plan is provided for each of the 71 lessons in the 11-unit Metra-Summerhays textbook. Each lesson plan begins with a list of objectives and includes sections devoted to real-world reading, writing, the phonics concepts and sight words covered in the textbook, word patterns, computer-assisted instruction (CAI), and homework. Each section on real-world reading contains suggestions for activities calling for concurrent use of recreational, instructional, and supplementary reading texts and sustained oral reading by tutors. The writing section of each lesson plan includes an activity based on a practical type of writing used in adults' daily lives and suggestions for using students' writing as a basis for helping them develop punctuation and grammar skills. The sections on word patterns, CAI, and homework present suggestions for using the Metra-Summerhays text and other CALL program materials to achieve lesson objectives. (MN)
