This guide was developed to help new literacy practitioners in Ontario, Canada, become familiar with designing, developing, and delivering literacy programs in the community. The guide is organized in 10 sections according to subject area. The three sections of part 1 deal with the developmental stages of planning, designing, and launching a program. The seven sections of part 2 address topics of concern in active programs, including the following: getting started in community literacy work, teaching adults to read and write, working with volunteers, working with learners, working outside the program, communication skills, support for literacy workers, administration, resources, and job description for community literacy organizers. Each section offers a summary of tips and is followed by a list of selected resources for more in-depth information on that topic. (KC)
