Exploring tutors' and students' beliefs about reading and reading strategies. (2002)

This document is part of a series prepared by literacy practitioner/researchers in Alberta to explore questions relating to literacy.

The author is a coordinator for a rural community-based volunteer tutor adult literacy program that involves about 40 students and 20 tutors a year. The study involved semi-structured interviews with three students and three tutors, along with observations of students as they were reading.

The interviews show that all three tutor-student pairs had similar views about reading and the reading process, agreeing that a good reader practises and reads a lot. Tutors’ responses supported a balanced approach that encourages reading for meaning, as well as using relevant reading material to teach print-based skills.
