Training Effective Literacy Tutors (T.E.L.T.).
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem. Office of Community Coll. Services.
The manual combines two previously-produced books into one guide for trainers of volunteer tutors of both basic English literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL). It includes an outline for a 10-hour workshop for both groups, with a suggested time frame. The workshop consists of three parts: a brief introduction and three instructional sessions for both groups; a 6-hour segment with separate content for literacy and ESL tutors; and a concluding segment. In the first part, instructional sessions focus on the adult learner, acknowledging cultural differences, and learning and teaching styles. The segment designed for basic literacy tutors contains two sessions: one on assessment and goal-setting, and a subject matter component (core material, decoding, comprehension, language experience, spelling and writing, and lesson planning). The segment designed for ESL tutors consists of one session on core material, getting to know students, vocabulary development, conversation skills, pronunciation, language experience, and lesson planning.
