Demystifying Adult Literacy for Volunteer Tutors (1996)

A Reference Handbook and Resource Guide

"Demystifying Adult Literacy For Volunteer Tutors: A Reference Handbook and Resource Guide" is a compilation of some of this background information gathered from a variety of different sources.

Each section ends with a list of references from which the information is obtained.

This Reference Handbook and Resource Guide is intended as a 'tool' for new and more experienced tutors, to provide background information about:

- literacy itself, how widespread it is and why;
- volunteer tutors - roles and responsibilities, and what personal characteristics are helpful in your role;
working with adult learners, what they need, how they feel;
- developing the tutor/learner relationship and learning program.

Also provided are: a glossary entitled "Are you literacy literate?" which outlines various types of literacy programs, and clarifies many common terms within the literacy field; and an extensive Annotated Bibliography of resources available through Literacy Partners of Manitoba.
