Applications of Best Practices: A Syllabus for Tutors of Independent Studies (I.S.) at Frontier College – Part 1 (2003)

Independent Studies (IS) at Frontier College operates adult learning programs, aimed primarily at people with disabilities. This document offers an outline of the main points of the IS course of study.

This resource is intended for both students and tutors, with students using it to see where their learning is going, and tutors using it as a teaching guide. It includes detailed descriptions of the academics, computer skills, and community integration components of the IS program.

The academics part of the IS program includes exercises for developing skills in reading, spelling, speaking and listening, and building sentences, while the computer section includes both foundational skills and website listings for students and tutors who are using the Internet to learn.

The community integration component is based on the concept of developing a range of skills that students can practise in their own communities. Specific projects deal with a book club, a photo story, and a reading series.

Frontier College is a national literacy organization that provides learning opportunities for Canadians of all ages through its partnerships with a variety of community groups.
