The Tutor's Toolbox.
Graham, Bill
The guide contains 25 useful techniques for teaching literacy. It is designed for basic literacy instruction but may also be used in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) instruction; three of the tools are specific to ESL students. Published sources that provide a fuller explanation of the techniques are listed after each entry and in a bibliography (14 items). Techniques include: the language experience story; phonics; key words; word patterns; word cards; sensory reinforcement; word compounding; overlearning; indexing; duet reading; block comprehension; newspaper use; cloze procedure; brief reading workouts; coached experience story; writing starts; spelling anchors; precious words; sentence play; nonsense words; games and incentives; dialogues (ESL); pronunciation contrasts (ESL); stress exercises; and publications. The description of each technique includes one or more suggested activity, with suggestions for variations. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
