Teaching learners what reading is all about
None. Resource is a self-contained manual.
This resource introduces adult education practitioners to the components of reading that are part of making more fluent readers. It provides details, including objectives, audience, time, agendas, session preparation, and resources for 13 lessons designed to help learners understand the research-based components of reading.
This resource provides a rather simplistic but useful tool for seminar
leaders or teacher development teachers/leaders. It's most useful features
are the concrete ideas for teachers to use with their students, especially
the goal setting piece.
These resources should be used with students who are in the upper part of
the targeted range (GLE 2.5ish - 6.0). Emphasis should be placed on spending
more time with each skill/strategy and selecting from the provided
activities those that actually match students' existing skills. Finally, the
reader should keep in mind that the teaching module is not a reading
curriculum-it is more of an "introduction to" a curriculum and that much
more instruction and assessment would need to occur than is described in the
This resource is valuable because it attempts to include adult learners as
decision-makers in their learning process and to be explicit about different
factors involved in skilled reading.
