A facilitator's guide for training effective adult literacy tutors
This training guide is intended for literacy coordinators and others who train adult literacy tutors.
It is divided into 12 units dealing with such topics as learning styles; characteristics of adult learners; planning for learning; and learning disabilities.
As well, two units focus specifically on English as a Second Language (ESL) tutoring.
Each unit contains both core and optional activities, along with an estimate of the time each will require and suggestions for modifying the activities.
The authors note that the guide has been designed to be flexible and can be used for introductory training or for more advanced in-service workshops. It can also be used in a group setting or for training a single tutor.
