Tutor Resource Activities Book.
Crawford County Literacy Council, Meadville, PA.
This document consists of a project report and tutor activities book from a project that was conducted for tutors associated with the Crawford County, Pennsylvania, READ Program. The project report describes how the commercial publications currently being used as tutor resource materials were examined to identify strategies appropriate for adult learners. Next, 10 literacy projects across Pennsylvania were surveyed to determine the most successful techniques for teaching adult literacy students. The strategies and techniques identified during the review and survey were rewritten to correspond with the READ program's current tutor training manual. Strategies and techniques were grouped under three headings (comprehension, vocabulary, and decoding), and individual activities were coded to indicate their appropriateness for visual, auditory, and tactile/kinesthetic learners. Copies of the tutor resource activities book were printed for dissemination to active READ tutors and the appropriate Pennsylvania programs/agencies. The tutor's book contains the following: general teaching tips and tips for teaching visual, auditory, and tactile/kinesthetic learners; nine comprehension activities; six vocabulary development activities; nine decoding activities; and appendixes consisting of teaching tips and word/abbreviation lists.
