Teaching Literacy and Numeracy to Craft Students
Adult Literacy and Basic Skills Unit, 1983 - Elementary education of adults - 41 pages
This handbook is intended to help craft lecturers in further education colleges teach students who have difficulties with basic communication skills, including reading, writing, and calculation. It gives suggestions on how craft lecturers can help students improve their literacy and numeracy in the workshop and classroom. Examples based on specific crafts that can be relatively easily adapted and applied to other craft subjects are given. Introductory materials discuss determination of reading, writing, and calculations tasks required in courses and teaching the theory of a craft subject. The next section concerns reading tasks with which craft students are faced, including the blackboard and overhead projectors; reading instructions, handouts, and worksheets; and textbooks. It considers the difficulties these pose and examines ways in which the craft tutor can help students improve their learning of the literacy and numeracy skills of the craft. The following section deals with access skills--library and research skills. Students' writing is the focus of the next section. It suggests ways of dealing with the wide range of written ability. The section on numeracy focuses on needs identification, instructional methods, and areas of numerical work. The final section suggests testing methodology. (YLB)
