Reaching Out: Recruiting a Specialized Ethnic Population.
Lycoming County Library System, Williamsport, PA.
This report describes a project intended to address specialized recruitment of a multiethnic drug and alcohol recovery population in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, who had not availed themselves of adult literacy services. A collaborator would be established within the community to encourage educationally disadvantaged adults who would be supported by their peers to seek educational services. Tutors and students were recruited and received instruction via one-on-one tutoring or small group tutorial. A small group tutorial training package was developed. The five-page report is accompanied by the training package. It provides these components for each of the eight areas covered in the two training sessions: objectives, materials list, rationale, and procedures. The eight areas are as follows: introductions, you the tutor, the adult learner, the reading process, the writing process, opportunistic teaching/learning, phonics and decoding skills, and wrap-up and evaluation. Student handouts are provided. (YLB)
