Put It in Print. How To Produce a Book of Writings by Adult Literacy Students.
Clark, Wilma; And Others
This manual is designed to guide literacy providers through the process of producing a book of writings by their adult literacy students. The book is organized in seven chapters. Chapter 1 advocates the value of writing and provides a rationale for a book of writing by literacy students. Chapter 2 provides details of a workshop to be conducted to teach tutors to do the types of writing through which they will coach their students. Application of the writing process to tutoring sessions with adult students is explored in chapter 3. The process of submitting the works, selecting which works to print, and editing the pieces to produce the book are explained in chapter 4. In chapter 5, suggestions are offered for the full range of possibilities for printing the book, and chapter 6 suggests ways to fund the printing costs. Chapter 7 suggests ways to wrap up the project and also provides information on marketing and distribution. Appendixes include handouts for tutors and a resource list for funding. Contains 39 references. (KC)
