Literacy tutor's guide : reading for meaning and the writing experience / Centre for Family Literacy
Based on the Centre for Family Literacy's training for tutors, this guide is divided into two sections. Adult Tutoring: Reading for Meaning explores the reading process and gives helpful strategies for beginning readers. Adult Tutoring: The Writing Experience describes the writing process and strategies for teaching writing. This practical guide would be valuable for tutors working with adult learners.
"This tutor's resource book is like having an experienced tutor by your side. It's layout is very workable - quick and easy access to helpful ideas. It's not a lot of reading to bod you down, but enough information to get the point - quickly. It provides a lot of strategies in a very small package." – March 2009 Exemplary Literacy Materials Online Reviews.
"This is a condensation of the best tutor manuals, with the emphasis on providing assistance to learners based on their individual needs and learning patterns. It provides various strategies for teaching word recognition, comprehension, writing and spelling. Lesson planning and material/resource selection are also included. This is a book every adult literacy tutor should have." – July 2008 Exemplary Literacy Materials Online Reviews.
