Guide to Contextualized Workplace Tutoring. Administrator's Guide to Implementing Contextualized Workplace Tutoring.
Medina, Muriel; And Others
This guide is designed to be used by Literacy Volunteers of America (LVA)--New York State tutors providing services to Youth Division Aides (YDAs) of the New York State Division for Youth. (YDAs supervise youth living in the state residential care system.) It describes ways in which tutors can build on the learning that takes place during Essential Communication and Documentation Skills, the inservice training provided to YDAs. Section 1 describes training available to LVA tutors, qualifications for volunteer tutors who provide contextualized tutoring, and duties. Section 2 describes the New York State Division for Youth (DFY) Essentials Program--the curriculum content, learning processes, and assessment. Section 3 provides suggestions for working with the YDA's individual development plan and helping the YDA develop plans for reaching goals. Section 4 guides the tutor in planning lessons that adapt the instructional approaches to the YDA's work-related reading goals. Section 5 emphasizes the importance of writing in daily work and helps the tutor teach job-related writing. Section 6 presents assessment as a natural part of tutoring and describes portfolio assessment. Section 7 gives a brief description of the four types of youth residential facilities and gives the tutor an idea of what a YDA is expected to do on the job. An appendix includes resources to use in planning the tutoring sessions as well as an 8-item list of additional resources the tutor may find useful. The companion publication provides information the affiliate administrator needs for taking YDAs into their programs as learners. Three sections cover the following: tutor requirements; intake, monitoring, and tutor support; and reporting process. (YLB)
