Synopsis

Guided Reading and Writing by Jan Treliving-Brown, Dr. Graham Lawler

Who is this resource book for? A stranger knocks on your office door and asks for literacy assistance. (These are not the words the stranger uses. He or she might say, 'I'm having trouble with my spelling/reading/writing'.) A brand new relationship has begun. There is a need now for meaningful interaction between tutor and learner, tutor and language, and eventually, learner and language. Learner independence is the goal. Dozens of different reasons account for the large number of adults in this category: failure in school, dysfunctional families, itinerancy, illness and emigration are among them. Most of these adults are aware of their needs. They know they lack reading and writing ability and they genuinely wish to improve their literacy skills. Seeking help is a huge step.Adults are motivated to seek help for different reasons, including getting a job or engaging in study - or they may simply want to gain independence in commonplace tasks such as helping their children with homework, reading the newspaper or writing a cheque. A significant result of their efforts, in addition to increasing their literacy skills, is positive impact on self-esteem. They will feel the benefits in every part of their lives. This is why this book and the series in which it is part, is so important. This is a major contribution to the education of adults in basic skills.
